A University of Louisville database of 708 names that included Social Security numbers and dialysis details was available on the Internet without password protection for nearly a year and a half. The Web site was disabled on May 17 when the university discovered the flaw. University officials said in a statement that accessing the database would not have been easy, and no direct links to the database were discovered. The information was available so long because the U of L doctor who set up the Web site thought the information was protected by a password and other precautions.

A woman got quite a surprise when she looked in her recycle bin. Someone had dumped hundreds of files of people's personal information. The manila folders that were found contained personal information of AT&T cell phone customers, including credit card numbers, driver's licenses and Social Security numbers. It appears the information was collected by another company called Ferrell Communication, which was located in a strip mall. It's no longer there, and the phone number listed isn't valid.
