Scalia. The rape was a “serious episode,” Scalia said in an interview. He added that the intrusion was isolated and that the hack did not affect the data of the Bureau of Labor Statistics or spread to other agencies within the department.

“The public can have complete confidence in the data that BLS has,” he said. He added that the department determined that none of the office’s data was “exfiltrated” or transferred from the office’s systems. “No data was lost or corrupted,” Scalia said.
