This has been happening for a number of years now, and is rapidly getting worse. On the dark web now days you can get gigs of information on the dollar, or bitcoin. It is rumored that a lot of low level total clearance packages downloaded from the OPM hack of our clearance data base are for sale for less than a hundred dollars per 100 clearance package. So not only the the Governments have access to this data, but so do the Cartels and other criminal elements. great stuff for blackmail and extortion even when a persons government and or government contracts are over. These hackers even try and claim a legitimacy for their work, saying they are just a smaller version of Wikileaks.
