Lady Bug Home Care Exposes Job Applicants to ID Theft

On October 18, 2007 the Liberty Coalition discovered an Excel file on Benbrook, TX-based Lady Bug Home Care’s home page that appears to contain sensitive personal information for 105 job applicants and their references. The file contains, full names, home phone numbers, social security numbers, addresses, e-mail addresses, previous addresses, dates of birth, drivers license numbers, medical information, emergency contact information, medical certification statuses, schools, degrees, car insurance information, and previous car accidents. Many individuals on this list are at extreme risk of identity theft. The site has since been taken down.

Applicants seemed to live in Texas, from the following cities: Alvarado, Arlington, Austin, Bedford, Benbrook, Burleson, Cross Roads, Crowley, Dallas, Denton, Elgin, Euless, Flower Mound, Fort Worth, Georgetown, Glenn Heights, Grandview, Hurst, Kennedale, Lewisville , Mansfield, Mesquite, N. Richland Hill, Pflugerville, Sanger, Weatherford, and Wylie.
