Washington (CNN)Four million current and former federal employees, from nearly every government agency, might have had their personal information stolen by Chinese hackers, U.S. investigators said.

U.S. officials believe this could be the biggest breach ever of the government’s computer networks. China called the allegation irresponsible.

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM), which is conducting background checks, warned it was urging potential victims to monitor their financial statements and get new credit reports.

Some federal employees were angry.

“Unreal, I don’t have enough money as it is,” Facebook user Shari Saeler posted on the OPM’s page. “Now I have to worry about someone stealing it!”

Retiree Linda Eleanor Rigby Robbins posted she didn’t know if she was affected.
