Enabling ID Fraud #1

May 04, 2007 (Computerworld)
— The federal agency responsible for securing the nation's airports said today
that it can't find an external hard drive packed with the personal records of
about 100,000 current and former employees.

Authorities at the Transportation Security
Administration (TSA)
noticed the drive missing yesterday, but aren't
certain where it is. “It is unclear at this stage whether the device is
still within headquarters or was stolen,” the agency said.

Assuming that the drive was in fact stolen — it went missing from what was
called a “controlled area” at TSA
headquarters in Washington D.C. — officials have asked the FBI and the U.S. Secret Service to investigate.
