Ho hum. Another class action filed against OPM for its massive data breach. The interesting fact here? The suit’s named plaintiff is a Judge with the Social Security Administration. On Friday, August 7, Social Security Administration Judge Teresa J. McGarry hit the OPM with its latest proposed class action suit alleging that OPM was aware of its security deficiencies and did nothing to cure them, which will “have consequences that will last for years to come.” McGarry further alleges that hackers are already selling OPM login credentials online.
The suit requests damages to compensate the affected individuals for current and future losses and injunctive relief to update OPM’s security measures.
