US officials have begun probing into the disappearance of 67 computers from the country’s nuclear weapons lab in New Mexico’s Los Alamos.

According to a nonprofit group exposing government misconduct, 13 of the missing computers were lost or stolen over past year. The lost computers included three taken from a scientist’s home last month.

A BlackBerry belonging to another worker was lost in a “sensitive foreign country,” said an internal Los Alamos Lab e-mail posted online by the Project On Government Oversight.

The group also posted a letter from the Energy Department’s National Nuclear Security Administration rebuking the Los Alamos lab for treating the situation as a property management issue and not as a cybersecurity risk.

The “magnitude of exposure and risk to the laboratory is at best unclear as little data on these losses has been collected or pursued given their treatment as property management issues,” the DOE memo says.

The incidents are “garnering a great deal of attention with senior management as well as NNSA (National Nuclear Security Administration) representatives,” the Los Alamos Lab e-mail says.

A Los Alamos spokesman was quoted as saying that the computers may have contained names and addresses but did not have any classified information on them.
