95 new breaches in 2010 that didn’t make the news

The good folks over at the Identity Theft Resource Center recently posted a very gracious thank-you to me and this site for helping track data breaches. I suspect that they’ll be pulling their hair out this weekend, though. ūüôā

In addition to the 100 previously unreported breaches from 2009 that I posted here today, here are another 95 breach reports that were received by NYS between January 1, 2010 and April 12, 2010 and that we didn’t already know about. The following are organized by sectors. As always, if you spot any errors or corrections, please let me know by using the Comments section on this site.

Of particular note in this batch, it appears that the Tropical Supermarket chain was hacked.   Since these reports were first received April 12, there may be more to come.
