HARTFORD, Conn. (May 21) - The bank told the state that a box with back-up bank tapes were lost in February from a truck that transports and stores tapes in its storage facility, Blumenthal said. The tapes contained Social Security numbers, names and addresses and possibly bank account numbers and balances, he said.
"This security breach seems highly dangerous, indeed possibly devastating in light of the identity theft threat," Blumenthal wrote to Stephen Dolmatch, general counsel of Bank of New York Mellon Shareowner Services.

this isent by far the first time something like this happend. its happened quite a few times in the past. the real conspiracy angle is the possibility that the tapes werent lost but rather sold.

While I was a video store manager I had access to hundreds of thousands of credit card numbers, along with other important information, and including the cardholder's signature.
