This includes sites of the HR and Interior departments of the federal government (Office of Personnel Management), and the target was mainly confidential employee data amounting to 4 Million records.
In a preliminary investigation, the FBI has said that the hack attempts were originating from China and also hinted at the involvement of a key foreign power to compromise the data.
