Federal officials are investigating a security breach that allowed
access to the personal information of at least 12,000 Savannah River
Site workers, reports The Augusta Chronicle.

The SRS is in South Carolina about 25 miles southeast of Augusta.

The U.S. Department of Energy said in a statement that initial
indications are that the disclosure was not the result of a
cyber-intrusion and that no classified data was compromised.

Workers are being told “to be vigilant in monitoring financial
transactions and emails or phone calls relating to such personal
transactions.”

The paper adds the Savannah River Site has a long history of making
nuclear weapons materials, but that today most activity involves
environmental management programs to clean up nuclear waste.
