Personal data from 'thousands' of NY hospital patients on Internet

New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center said Monday afternoon that personal information, including at least 10 Social Security numbers, were "inadvertently" made publicly accessible on the Internet.

Hospital officials said in a statement that information from 6,800 patients was accidentally posted on a server, according to reports from Fox News and The New York Times. The hospital has since removed the information, the media reports said.
