The important Tan is in her late 50s and has recently retired from her job as researcher at an institute in Hanoi. Her house is located in Thanh Xuan, which is more than 10km from the centre of the capital city. “It is there,” Tan pointed to the electric poll with grids that look like they are in an interlacing cobweb when we asked her about the loudspeaker in her neighborhood.

Data breaches at the U.S. government's personnel management agency by hackers, with suspicions centering on China, involves millions more people than previously estimated, U.S. officials said on Thursday. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) said data stolen from its computer networks included Social Security numbers and other sensitive information on 21.5 million people who have undergone background checks for security clearances. That is in addition to data on about 4.2 million current and former federal workers that was stolen in what the OPM called a "separate but related" hacking incident. Because many people were affected by both hacks, a total of 22.1 million people were affected, or almost 7 percent of the U.S. population. The breach had already been considered one of the most damaging on record because of its scale and, more importantly, the sensitivity of the material taken. Those exposed included 19.7 million who applied for the clearances - current, former, and … [Read more...] about Millions more Americans hit by government personnel data hack
