Boeing Warns Thousands of Employees of Security Breach

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Boeing is warning 36,000 employees their personal information may have been compromised.

A letter sent to Washington State’s attorney general, obtained by KMOX, explains a Boeing employee sent his non-Boeing employee spouse a spreadsheet for formatting help — unaware social security numbers and birthdates were in hidden columns.

Affected employees were offered free credit monitoring services, though Boeing doesn’t think any information was used maliciously.

A spokesman says everyone potentially affected has been notified, but couldn’t immediately say if that includes anyone in the St. Louis area.
