The Transportation Security Administration says it will launch a “full review” of an incident in which the agency posted on the internet a sensitive manual outlining security procedures for law enforcement officers, diplomats, prisoners, federal air marshals and others.
The 93-page manual gives instructions to airport screeners on how to screen individuals. It also gives details on how screening is conducted and the limitations of the x-ray machines. The most sensitive information was redacted – which means people couldn’t read it – but hackers got in and put that information back in.
TSA officials say the manual was removed as soon as it was discovered.
