Pentagon's network attacked, Ohio loses data

Yesterday, the Pentagon pulled as many as 1,500 computers offline due to a particularly severe network attack, according to the Associated Press. While the Defense Department works to get the computers back online, personnel can continue to work using back-up systems and their BlackBerries.

Also, this week Ohio had let loose identifying information of 225,000 taxpayers and 60,000 state employees, due to a "back-up" device being stolen from a government intern's car, according to Information Week.
