The Social Security numbers of living people were made available on the Social Security Administration's Death Master File.  This happened twice.  Between July of 2006 and January 0f 2009 26,930 people had their Social Security numbers and other identifying information exposed. A warning from the SSA's Office of the Inspector General about privacy risks associated with the report was not enough to prevent the second incident. Between May 2007 and April of 2010 36,657 people had their full names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, and last known ZIP code exposed.
