InformationWeek reports that the Federal Trade Commission has warned nearly 100 organizations in both the public and private sector that they should review their security practices. In the letters, the FTC says:
at least one computer file containing sensitive personal information from or about your customers and/or employees has been shared from your computer network, or the network of one of your service providers, to a peer-to-peer file sharing (P2P) network.
According to Computerworld, the letters also warned the companies that failing to prevent such information from being shared may be in violation of laws enforced by the commission. So far, the FTC has not filed any lawsuits related to the breaches.
