Breaches Made Within Department Of Revenue

The Wisconsin Department of Revenue says Social Security numbers of thousands of people who sold their homes in 2011 were inadvertently included on an annual sales report that was publically available on the Internet for three months. Stephanie Marquis of the department says internal procedures for posting reports to prevent such security breaches were not followed.

Letters to everyone affected offering free credit monitoring for a year will be sent soon.
