Census Bureau Posts Social Security Numbers

It is tough to imagine in today’s day and age where the general media in constantly running stories about identity theft that our government could have a public website with the social security numbers of tens of thousands on it.
 
As many as 63,000 social security numbers were posted online according to the Washington Post. The article goes on to say the social security numbers of 28,000 farmers were also posted online. The way the article reads it would seem the latter number is included in the former.
 
The federal agency that made this mistake was the Census Bureau and according to the article those affected can get a full year of credit monitoring for free.
