Social Security numbers for more than 1,200 participants in a National
Institutes of Health study were stored on a stolen laptop containing their
medical records, putting those patients at risk of identity theft, agency
officials said yesterday.
NIH officials had initially assured the more than 3,000 patients whose
records were on the laptop that the computer's contents -- unencrypted, in
violation of federal policy -- did not contain any information that could
put their identity or finances at risk.
But an ongoing review of the computer's last-known contents, performed on
data backed up from the laptop before it was stolen, has found a file
that, unbeknownst to the lead researcher, had been loaded onto the laptop
by a research associate.
