NY: Stolen Pioneer bank laptop contained some customers’ data (updated)
Eric Anderson reports:
Pioneer Bank over the weekend alerted some of its customers that an employee’s laptop stolen Jan. 26 contained “secured personal information of certain customers, including names, social security numbers, street addresses, and account and debit card numbers.”
Letters were sent to those customers whose information “may have been on this laptop,” Pioneer said. Not all customers were affected, and Pioneer said it was “currently unaware of any misuse of any of the customer information relating to this incident.”

I wonder what they mean by “secured.”
Update: Larry Rulisun of the Times Union has more details on the theft in a follow-up report. As a commenter on this blog reports, the bank is telling customers who call that the data were “encrypted.”
