Hartford Breach Affecting 9,558 Includes

MidState Medical Center has begun sending letters to 93,500 patients whose personal information may have been compromised following the accidental loss of a computer hard drive, the hospital said in a letter to employees Tuesday.
Meantime, the offices of the Connecticut attorney general and the Department of Consumer Protection are demanding more details about what happened and what data may have been compromised.
The misplaced hard drive, which has not yet been recovered, contains patient's names, addresses, birthdates, social security numbers and medical record numbers, hospital spokeswoman Pamela Cretella said.
