Many citizens have already received letters informing them of the possible infringement of their data. Many of these letters were published on Reuters.

Letters from DISA did not provide much detail on the incident security. For example, they did not mention which part of DISA's network was violated. We also do not know which people were affected by the violation.

The White House and President Trump have not yet commented.

In addition, we do not know exactly how the violation took place. The term "data breach" can mean many things. For example, they could have penetrated hackers on the service network. Another possible scenario is the exposure of a database or one server on Internet.

The service said that there is no evidence that they are personal data citizens and Trump have been used by third parties. However, there was a security incident, so people had to be informed of the possible infringement of data their. For this reason, the letters were also sent.

A Pentagon spokesman said the possible victims received "information on actions that can be taken to mitigate possible adverse effects" of the breach.

DISA, based in Fort Meade, Maryland, employs about 8.000 soldiers and civilians. A Pentagon spokesman did not say how many people may have been affected. However, he said DISA has done so research and has taken appropriate measures to improve security.
