Air Force hit with security breach

Air Force officials are busy notifying more than 33,000 airmen that a security breach has occurred with its online assignment and career management system.

Air Force officials are busy notifying more than 33,000 airmen that a security breach has occurred with the Air Force's online assignment and career management system. Officials with the Air Force Personnel Center noticed "unusually high activity on a single user's Assignment Management System account in June," according to an Air Force announcement released on Friday. The attacker accessed and downloaded such personal information as birthdates and social security numbers via a user's legitimate log-in information.

The incident occurred at the Randolph Air Force Base in Texas. Officials at the base have contacted the Air Force and federal investigators and an investigation is ongoing, according to a military spokeswoman.
