A burglary at an Advocate Medical Group administration building might have put the personal information of more than 4 million patients at risk, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Four computers were stolen from the building in Park Ridge, and information on the password protected, but not encrypted, machines include the addresses, names, social security numbers and dates of birth of some four million patients, according to the report.
A spokesman for Advocate told the Tribune that no medical records were included on the stolen computers. From now until Sept. 9 the medical group will send letters to affected individuals offering one year of credit report monitoring.
