Contractor blamed in DHS data breaches
The FBI is investigating Unisys for criminal fraud, according to a committee aide. The panel began its inquiry into the matter in April. And Homeland Security's Internal Affairs division is conducting a probe as well. FBI spokesman Richard J. Kolko said he could not confirm or deny whether the FBI is investigating the matter.
