IBM contractor loses employee data in transit

Apparently fell off the back of a truck, more or less literally
IBM on Tuesday said it has been unable to recover lost storage tapes containing sensitive employment-related information of some former and current IBM workers.

The tapes were lost more than two months ago just a few miles south of IBM's corporate headquarters, because of what a company spokesman called a "transportation incident" involving an IBM vendor.

The lost tapes primarily stored the archived personal information -- including Social Security numbers, dates of hire and dates of departure from IBM -- of an undisclosed number of individuals.
