Hill AFB personal info compromised by email

HILL AIR FORCE BASE, UTAH — Authorities say more than 500 Hill Air Force Base employees had their personal information compromised after a base employee sent the data to an unprotected email address.

The Standard-Examiner reports the breach happened in early July, when an administrative employee sent names and Social Security numbers of fellow employees to a personal account to finish a project at home.

That violates the policies of the base, the Air Force and the Defense Department.

John Cullinane, the chief of the base’s 75th Force Support Squadron, sent a letter to the employees who were affected and assured them the breach wasn’t a malicious act.

But he recommended employees put an initial fraud alert on their credit files to prevent potential misuse of the information.
