Deja vu all over again: Another Continental Airlines laptop stolen

Continental Airlines, which reported a laptop stolen from their Newark office earlier this year found themselves again in the unenviable position of notifying employees of yet a second stolen laptop.

On March 30, a laptop was stolen that contained employee information such as name, Social Security number, Continental ID number, position title, and contact address.

Through what appears to be an oversight on Continental’s part, the notification letter (pdf) sent to the the Maryland Attorney General’s Office appears to be a duplicate of the letter sent describing the first breach, with only the date of notification to individuals changed. It’s not clear, then, whether this second laptop was stolen from an office, home, vehicle, or other location, and how many employees, total, had information on this second stolen laptop.
