Katrina evacuees may have had personal information published on web

Katie Moore of WWLTV reports that although FEMA learned on December 19 that personal information of nearly 17,000 evacuees — including “names, Social Security numbers, addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses and other disaster information” — was published without authorization on scribd.com and esnips.com, many of those affected are just now finding out about it. The data had been provided to the Texas Workforce Commission.

To date, FEMA and TWC have been unable to determine who uploaded the files to those web sites.
