    UNION: HACKERS HAVE PERSONNEL DATA ON EVERY FEDERAL EMPLOYEE
    Hackers stole personnel data and Social Security numbers for every federal employee, a government worker union said Thursday, asserting that the cyber theft of U.S. employee information was more damaging than the Obama administration has acknowledged.

        Hacking is bad. You shouldn't do it.

                      There are bearded ninjas, and pirates without beards.

                      Besides, you ninja'd Sparko earlier.

                              Being former military, I'm somewhat concerned by this turn of events, although I expected it to happen sooner or later. When you expose stuff to the internet, stuff can get stolen.

                              In one of my jobs in the military, not only were our computers not connected to the internet, but we used removable hard drives and locked them in safes at night. In a room with motion detectors. Behind double locked doors. Inside a guarded building complex. Ah, those were the days.
