Lost Computer Tapes Had Details on 135,000 Workers, Patients - washingtonpost.com

Another timely reality check. 

Personal data on about 135,000 Johns Hopkins employees and patients were lost last month, the university announced yesterday, when a contractor did not return backup computer tapes from the hospital and the university payroll.

After an investigation, school officials concluded that the tapes were most likely discarded and destroyed, but because they couldn't be certain, letters and e-mails were sent yesterday to alert people who might have been affected.
