VA Secretary Reports Stolen VA Computer and Disk Found

Computerworld just reported the stolen VA computer and disk have been recovered.

"A missing laptop and hard disk containing personal data on over 26.5 million veterans has been recovered, Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary Jim Nicholson announced this morning.

"The investigation continues to see whether or not this information has been compromised in any way," or whether copies of the data have been made, Nicholson said just before a scheduled hearing before the House Commitee on Veterans Affairs."

I did not see any press release about it on the official VA info website however…hopefully they will post something soon.

More on this later…I want to see what the official VA press release says about this…and of course how the situation develops and impacts the credit monitoring promises…and what forensics will be done on the recovered computer and disk…etc…
