VA data breach update:
apparently, a coalition of veterans groups has filed a class action suit
over the VA data breach incident. As far as Iknow, there are no reports yet of any improper data use (what we lawyers would call "damages") from the stolen data. I'm guessing that, at this point, there won't be any. But that doesn't stop the lawyers from asking for $1,000 per person, or about $25 Billion Dollars. And who's to pay? The government (i.e., you and me), of course.
