No sign of data breach after Centcom laptops stolen, U.S. Attorney says

Howard Altman reports:

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says that there are no signs of a data breach caused by the theft of five laptop computers from U.S. Central Command sometime in April 2013.

“There is no indication of a data breach at this point,” said spokesman William Daniels. “As cases proceed, we always remain open to new information and evidence. However, at this point, the indictment only alleges theft of government computers.”

On Friday, Scott Duty, a former civilian employee of Centcom, headquartered at MacDill Air Force Base, was arrested on a theft charge in connection with the command’s stolen laptops, according to court documents.
