    Ernst & Young has lost another laptop containing the social security numbers and other personal information of its clients' employees. This time, the incident puts thousands of IBM workers at risk. Ex-IBM employees are also affected. The Register has learned that the laptop was stolen from an Ernst & Young employee's car in January. The employee handled some of the tax functions Ernst & Young does for IBM workers who have been stationed overseas at one time or another during their careers. As a result of the theft, the names, dates of birth, genders, family sizes, SSNs and tax identifiers for IBM employees have been exposed.
