The personal information of more than 700 Yuma Proving Ground employees may be at risk of identity theft because a home computer that contained their data may have been compromised. According to YPG spokesman, personnel information from 2005-2007, which included the names and Social Security numbers of the employees at that time, was being stored on the personal home computer of an employee of the installation's Resource Management Division. That information, which was being maintained by the Department of the Army, could have been compromised and possibly accessed during that time because the employee's computer may have picked up a virus from the Internet.
