A foreign entity or government is believed to be behind a massive cyber breach that compromised the data of about 4 million current and former US government employees, a law enforcement official said on Thursday.

The official would neither confirm nor deny that China was the principal suspect. Media reports said US officials suspected the cyber attack originated in China.

The breach was spotted about two weeks ago and has been under investigation since then, the official said.
