Palo Alto Children's Health Council, 6,700 SSNs, Thief

A backup tape containing the names, Social Security numbers and detailed health information of as many as 6,000 current and former clients of the Children’s Health Council was stolen from the nonprofit agency’s offices, officials confirmed Sunday.

From SignonSandiego, “Thousands of health records stolen from Palo Alto agency.” via Cotse Privacy Watch. The Children’s Health Council site hasn’t been updated in over a week, so I don’t know what they’re doing for their customers.
