FTC laptops stolen, along with personal data


The U.S. Federal Trade Commission is notifying 110 people that two laptop computers containing their personal data were stolen from a locked vehicle.

The information includes individuals' names, addresses, Social Security numbers, birth dates and "in some cases, financial account numbers," the regulatory agency said yesterday. The laptops are password-protected, and the FTC said it had no reason to think the data on the laptops, rather than the laptops themselves, was the target of theft.
