Have you ever had a security clearance or even applied for a job in the U.S. Government?
Maybe you applied for a job with a government contractor?
Well if you have your fingerprints were taken and now it looks like the OPM breach also included the exposure and thief of over 5 million fingerprints (current estimate). The not good information!
The original information said that the breach may have included some 1 million finger prints and only affected a few million workers but soon the real truth come out. The breach caused the loss of over 27 million data profiles of citizens, ex-employees and employees that held security clearances, past and present, along with 5+ millions of fingerprints with the deep biographic information that was provided on our top security employees, with many overseas.
This information added to the many other U.S. data breaches could allow the Chinese to know who our spies are and they will know the employees, their families, their friends, their health and even their financial status.
I am sure that the Chinese and other state hackers will willingly sell this very important information to North Korea, Iran, ISIS, Russia and anyone else that has a grudge on the U.S. This data will allow the enemies of ours to recruit our spies and even may lead to their catastrophic removal or blackmail. This data will also allow for our enemies to know who and where are our deep spies, those that work under alias names and jobs now they can easily be exposed by their fingerprints and put into the deep threat of removal and their families can be attacked/threatened.
