Bank of America Loses Tapes With Federal Workers' Data

Guess who's going to start worrying about identity theft now?

According to a story in the Washington Post: "Bank of America Corp. has lost computer data tapes containing personal information on 1.2 million federal employees, including some members of the Senate. The lost data include Social Security numbers and account information that could make customers of a federal government charge-card program vulnerable to identity theft. Eloise Hale, a Bank of America spokeswoman, said federal law enforcement officials were notified as soon as the tapes were discovered missing."
