Via Burn Bag:
OPM, in the FAQ section of the CSID website, declares that our family members were “not affected by this breach. The only data potentially exposed as a result of this incident is your personal data.” Thus, our family members cannot use the credit monitoring and identity theft protection services. But wait. My spouse’s name, date of birth, place of birth, passport number, and social security number were listed in my SF-86. And my SF-86 has been compromised. So hasn’t my spouse been “affected” by this breach, too?
So far no one has been fired, no one has accepted responsibility for the breach, and the OPM notification letter says, “Nothing in this letter should be construed as OPM or the U.S. Government accepting liability for any of the matters covered by this letter or for any other purpose.”
