Two breaches may have left sensitive information of up to 9,000 U.S. Army families vulnerable, NBC's Washington, D.C. affiliate reported Friday.

Data could include Social Security numbers, medical histories, addresses and child daycare information, according to the report. At least 82 families had private information seen by unauthorized individuals, the General Services Administration told the station, News 4.

The families took part in the Army's Fee Assistance program, which helps service members and civilian employees pay for private child care. After it found that the 82 families were vulnerable, the GSA offered credit monitoring and identity theft protection to all 9,000 participating families.

The report says the program has struggled to keep up with the subsidies, leaving some of its recipients straining to make ends meet.
