A computer containing personal information on thousands of veterans has turned up missing. The computer contained names, addresses, Social Security Numbers, dates of birth, insurance carriers, billing information, dates of military service, and claims data that may have included some medical information on at least 5,000 veterans (and possibly up to 38,000). The data was not encrypted. For more information on this and other data privacy compromises see:
