OPM hacked, 4 million records compromised

Was it China?

US officials suspect hackers in China are responsible for a cyber attack on the Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) computer systems that left the personal information of almost four million current and former federal government employees exposed.

The breach, which was detected back in April, is now being described as one of the largest thefts of government data ever seen. DHS concluded back in May that the information had indeed been compromised and stolen, but so far neither OPM of the FBI have indicated exactly whose records have been exposed.
