A computer hard drive with the personal details of 100,000 people in the British armed forces was lost. The drive was lost by EDS, the main IT contractor for the Ministry of Defense. The data on the drive contained names, addresses, phone numbers, birth dates, and drivers license numbers.

Also among the data was next of kin information, information on 600,000 potential services applicants and the names of referees. Bank account details may have also been included in the data.

Officials say the data was found to be missing Wednesday after EDS conducted a priority audit. Keeping private data private has become an epic problem of late.
