Names and SSNs of several hundred physicians, psychologists and other health care providers were mistakenly posted online by Segal Group, a contractor hired by the state to put its health management contract out for bid. The information was posted from May 12 to June 19. It was discovered when a doctor found her own SSN online.  A Vermont state agency used to call for bids on state contracts was involved.  

UPDATE (1/14/07): SSNS of more than 1,100 doctors, psychothereapists and other health professionals were exposed.
