Philadelphia Inquirer, December 1, 2009

A Children's Hospital of Philadelphia laptop computer containing Social Security numbers and other personal information for 943 people was stolen from a car outside an employee's home on Oct. 20. The billing information on the computer was password-protected, but an analysis found it was "possible to decode the security controls on the laptop and gain access to the personal information," the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
