Personal data of more than 130.000 sailors in the U.S. Navy possibly stolen


We are in the early stages of investigating and are working quickly to identify and take care of those affected by this breach,” Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Robert Burke said. The personal data came from the Career Waypoints database, known as C-WAY, which sailors use to submit re-enlistment and Navy Occupational Specialty requests. The names and the social security numbers were probably stolen, An initial investigation has not uncovered evidence that the data has been used in a malicious manner. Affected sailors will be notified of the breach by email, letter and phone, the Navy said. For those affected by this incident, the Navy is working to provide further details on what happened, and is reviewing credit monitoring service options for affected Sailors.
