US officers have been buying back stolen computer drives, which were stolen from a base a while ago many of which contain sensitive military data, from an Afghan market near a key airbase.
Shopkeepers in the bazaar, next to the Bagram airbase outside Kabul, have been selling the finger-sized "flash drives" reportedly stolen from the facility.

An inquiry has begun into how security was breached at Bagram.

Shopkeepers said the drives were stolen by Afghans employed at the base as cleaners, office staff and labourers.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

one must ask how sensitive data can be stolen so easily and in that large amount.
also makes you think how many have been sold to Bin ladin and co. (since any latop/computer with a USB port can read them)
