Here we go again! More Data Theft!

We have warned here that the personal information of Americans is no longer safe.

"The personal financial information of up to 210,000 unemployed Massachusetts residents may have been stolen in a data breach caused by a virus discovered in state labor department computers four weeks ago, officials said yesterday."

"Names, addresses, and Social Security numbers, among other data, may have been taken, said John Glennon, chief information officer for the Massachusetts Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development. The number of affected recipients is probably a small fraction of the total number of potential victims, according to Glennon. The virus attempted to transmit confidential information to digital thieves, he added, but it was not clear how much, or even whether, any data was successfully stolen."

I will predict here that every American will have their confidential information stolen over the next two years. this will pose a huge threat to national security, economic stability, and individual tranquility. We will soon be a country of frightened, sleepless paranoids who spend all day and nights trying to recover their credit and personal information.
