After reports that one of its employees was behind a recent leak of classified National Security Agency programs, government consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton's stock fell sharply on Wall Street.

When markets opened on Monday, the stock of the Northern Virginia-based company fell nearly 5 percent. As of 11:15 a.m., the stock was down 3.94 percent.

 

Edward Snowden, who worked at the NSA for four years with different government contractors, was the man behind the massive leaks to The Guardian and The Washington Post. He is currently living in Hong Kong, seeking asylum.

This drop is the biggest intraday drop since Jan. 30, according to Bloomberg.
