It now appears that Monster.com knew about a breach of its systems almost a month before Symantec told Monster of a massive phishing operation targeting Monster.com users. That long of a lag is "inexcusable," said W. David Stephenson, a homeland security and corporate crisis management consultant, "after the legacy of past problems."
The hackers who compromised more than a million users of the Monster.com job search site also accessed a U.S. government career site that the company runs for the U.S. Office of Personnel and Management, the government said Friday.
OPM spokesperson Peter Graves told Reuters that 146,000 users of the USAJobs.gov site had their personal information stolen -- including names, mailing addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses. The government shut off recruiter access to the site until Monster.com completes its review of the system's security Relevant Products/Services.
