Read entire letter here: Honorable Archuleta Letter – June 18, 2015

newsIn a letter to Office of Personnel Management Director Katherine Archuleta, J. David Cox, Sr., the president of the American Federation of Government Employees, said that AFGE believes that hackers are now in possession of all personnel data on every federal employee.

Cox sent the letter to OPM today and the union is basing its conclusion on information that OPM has released. Additionally, Cox said that he believes that the Social Security numbers that were compromised were not encrypted, something he called “absolutely indefensible and outrageous.”
