The burglars who stole a VA computer analyst's laptop from his home didn't access the data, the FBI says. The case was a jackpot anyway for the informant who turned in the data for a $50,000 reward.
Veterans still seeking credit monitoring
WASHINGTON (AP) - Veterans groups say they will keep pressing for improved data security _ and free credit monitoring _ after the government found the stolen Veterans Affairs laptop computer containing sensitive data on 26.5 million people.
The government announced Thursday that a person officials would not identify had turned in the laptop and external drive, which were stolen from a VA data analyst on May 3. The FBI said an initial review determined that the contents had not been accessed or copied.
