DENVER A Dallas data processing company says personal information on as
many as one-point-four (M) million Coloradans may be in the hands of
thieves.
A computer taken from Colorado state contractor Affiliated Computer
Services contains the data at least 500-thousand people who made child
support payments Colorado's state Department of Human Services.

It also holds data on up to nearly a (M) million Coloradans newly hired to
jobs anywhere in the state. The law requires employers check data on all
new employees against a state database to make sure the employee isn't
being sought for child support payments.

A-C-S says it's notifying hundreds of thousands of people about the theft,
but stresses that authorities don't believe a thief was after the personal
data or out to commit identity theft.

A state spokeswoman says the computer theft was the fault of Affiliated
Computer Services. She the company's contract comes up for renewal next
June and will NOT be renewed.
