Any introduced malware (most likely backdoors - logon capabilities that give full access to the system - so-called "root access" - that are controlled by unauthorized persons) is probably aimed at getting access to the various government databases, and potentially of introducing exploitable weaknesses in other government systems, rather than simply trying to grab personal confidential information on a few million Americans - that you can get with a lot less effort by hacking a company's credit card database (or, if you want medical info, those of various hospitals).
