Security breach story of the week...BD

October 17, 2007 (Computerworld) -- Administaff Inc., a Houston-based provider of outsourced human resources services, this week began notifying about 159,000 former and current employees about a stolen laptop containing their unencrypted personal data. The information belonged to Administaff worksite employees in 2006, including 96,000 former workers and 63,000 current ones. A note posted on the company's site described the event as "random," with the personal information apparently not the target of the theft. "At this time, the company has no reason to believe that the personal information has been accessed or used improperly," Administaff said
