Breach in Florida donor registry may have exposed IDs

Carly Timmons of ABC reports:

State health officials say a security breach in the Organ and Tissue Donor Registry may have exposed thousands of donors’ personal information, including their social security numbers.

The Agency for Health Care Administrations said Monday it has corrected the flaw, which may have allowed unauthorized users to view the personal information of roughly 55,000 donors.

The database includes donors’ names, addresses, birth dates and driver license numbers. The agency is sending letters to inform individuals of the flaw.
