New Hampshire State DHHS data leak: Here's a data leak story with a special twist: it was the New Hampshire state department of Health and Human Services that inadvertently leaked records of state participants in the Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit plan. A spreadsheet was inadvertently attached to a workbook that was published online; the spreadsheet had names and social security numbers, but not actual prescription data. So it could've been worse.

Mistakes happen, I guess.
