FBI Gets Back Veterans Data Laptop; Claims No One Accessed It
from the all-clear? dept
After all of the coverage concerning the laptop and hard drive stolen from a Veterans Affairs employee's home, the FBI is now claiming that it has recovered the system, and based on their checks, it appears that the data was never accessed. All along, many people figured this was the work of a random burglar who had no clue what was on the laptop -- and this recovery suggests that may have been correct. However, the FBI admits that no one is in custody, after an anonymous person they don't believe was involved turned in the machine. Of course, rather than taking the FBI's word for it, I'd imagine most people whose data is in the database would feel better with some credit monitoring.
