On March 21st, thieves removed eight computers and a server from Central Collection Bureau’s headquarters in Indianapolis. On the server was personal information, including names, addresses, and social security numbers of as many as 700,000 consumers that CCB was collecting from.
The information on the server was stored behind three locked doors and protected by a password, but not encrypted.
So who steals a server? Are geeks turning to physical crime, or are identity thieves getting desperate in the face of the plummeting value of personal information?
The information is almost certainly out of date, and I do not plan to update it.
