One of the computers used by the contractor Serco to support the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board (FRTIB) was the target of a sophisticated cyber attack.  Thrift Savings Plan participants and others who received TSP payments may have had their information exposed. However, there is no evidence that the entire TSP network of 4.5 million participants was breached. A total of 43,587 participants may have had their Social Security numbers, names, and addresses compromised. An additional 80,000 may have had their Social Security numbers and no other information compromised. The attack appears to have occurred in July of 2011 and was discovered through an FBI investigation in April of 2012.
