A subpoena by the Department of Social Services revealed the names and Social Security numbers of multiple people.  The subpoena was in response to reports that state employees had engaged in food stamp fraud.  Instead of separate subpoenas for each individual, a sheet with 40 names and a sheet with 90 names were sent.  This allowed state employees who are under investigation to learn that their fellow employees were under investigation, as well as their Social Security numbers.
