If it can happen to the government, it can certainly happen to you! Hackers have attacked the US Department of Energy.

"The Department of Energy has just confirmed a recent cyber incident that occurred in mid-January which targeted the Headquarters' network and resulted in the unauthorized disclosure of employee and contractor Personally Identifiable Information".

The agency said that it is working to figure out the "nature and scope of the incident" but that so far it believes no classified data was compromised. It's currently unclear which divisions within the Department of Energy were attacked or who was behind the hack.
