Report: Breach exposes Justice Breyer’s personal data

The Washington Post reported today that a security breach caused by file sharing at an investment firm exposed the confidential information of about 2,000 of the firm’s clients, including Supreme Court Justice Stephen G. Breyer. Apparently, an employee at Wagner Resource Group in McLean, Va., used LimeWire to share music or a movie on a company computer, which accidentally exposed private files containing names, birth dates and Social Security numbers belonging to the firm’s clients.

In May, a P2P network was the apparent source of a breach at Walter Reed Army Medical Center that exposed the personal information of 1,000 former patients.
