USPS 800,000 Workers Hacked by Chinese Hackers

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) revealed Monday that data on its employees may have been hacked

USPS said it recently learned of a data breach affecting the names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, addresses, employment dates and emergency contact information of up to 800,000 employees.

The Washington Post reports that China may have been involved in the cyberattack, citing anonymous sources. USA TODAY has been unable to confirm the report.

If indeed China is behind the attack, it's likely part of an attempt to gain more information about U.S. government, said Edward Ferrara, an analyst with Forrester, a technology research company.
