American Air Parent Claims Worker Data Compromised

The parent company of American Airlines says the personal information of about 79,000 retirees, former and current employees that was held by the company’s pension department has been compromised.
No customer data was affected. AMR says the breach happened when a hard drive was stolen from its headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas.
The data spans a period from 1960 to 1995. The drive contained images of historical microfilm files, which included names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, and possibly some bank account information. Some health insurance information may have also been included.
AMR is offering one year of free credit monitoring for those affected.
