The US Postal Service says it has become the victim of a cyber attack and information about its employees may have been compromised.

Postal Service spokesman David Partenheimer said personal information that may have been obtained in the attack includes employees’ names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, addresses, emergency contacts and other information.

He said customers at local post offices or using its website, usps.com, were not affected.

However, people who used its call centre may have had telephone numbers, email addresses and other information compromised.

The FBI and other federal agencies are investigating.
