Interesting Article: Personal Data of 26.5M Veterans Stolen

Sometimes, it is not only hackers you have to worry about, it's the people who work for a company. For example, this article, from May 2006, discusses how 26.5 million veterans had their personal information compromised because someone brought home data he was not supposed to.

Personal data, including Social Security numbers of 26.5 million U.S. veterans, was stolen from a Veterans Affairs employee this month after he took the information home without authorization, the department said Monday.
