Data on 185,000 California patients stolen

A CNET News report:

"A California medical group is telling nearly 185,000 current and former patients that their financial and medical records may have been exposed following the theft of computers that contained personal data. Given the number of people affected, the theft from the San Jose Medical Group ranks among the largest in the nation. It follows a rash of other breaches that have raised concerns about the security of sensitive information. The theft occurred after the San Jose Medical Group had copied patient and financial information from its secured servers to two local PCs, said Mike Patel, vice president of information technology for the San Jose Medical Group."
