Data Breach: Judge Approves $63 million for OPM Hack Victims

One of the most controversial data breaches is coming to its conclusion after a seven-year legal battle in a newly released court order. U.S. district judge Amy Berman Jackson gave preliminary approval for a $63 million settlement. Under the proposed settlement, victims who can prove that they suffered from financial losses due to the incident could receive at least $700 and with a maximum amount of $10,000. 

In June 2015 Office of Personnel Management announced that its personnel records have been targeted by foreign government-backed hackers. This resulted in a catastrophic breach of personal information including check forms, Social Security numbers, and fingerprint information.
