An infected laptop was used to access the systems at the Pentagon’s credit union, exposing the financial records of the members of the United States military, according to a Kaspersky Lab report.
This isn’t the first time PenFed has been targeted. The credit union posted an alert on its Web site notifying users that a person who was calling members to say their mortgages were being sold and requesting personal information was fraudulently masquerading as a PenFed underwriter.
I wonder if the laptop had PCI-mandated firewall and anti-virus software.
