A pair of laptops containing the personal data of around 31,000 US Navy
personnel officers and potential recruits were separately stolen from two
New Jersey recruitment offices over the last two months.
The Navy said that sensitive data on the machines was password protected in
both cases. Around 4,000 of the records held on the PCs contained social
security numbers. The Navy is seeking to play down identity theft fears
arising from the thefts.
