US Department of Veteran Affairs in yet another data breach

Antony Savvas

The US Department of Veterans Affairs is investigating yet another data breach, this time the theft of three PCs containing the details of 12,000 vets.

The VA organisation saw personal details of 26.5 million vets stolen last year when a laptop and hard disk went missing.

Since then, in separate incidents, VA has lost 250,000 personal details, 16,000 personal details, and 16,500, among others.

The latest theft - two desktops and one laptop - took place at a medical facility in Indiana. The personal details included social security numbers of vets.
