NH agency sends 9,300 SSNs as email attachment

If I were a New Hampshire resident I would be doubly furious that:

1. The Department of Health and Human Services sent an email with SSNs as an attachment to at least 61 recipients; and
2. That they (NH HHS) would have the audacity to say that there is "no evidence anyone has misused it." A credit card expires; SSNs are for life!

The icing on the cake comes from asking all of the email recipients to confirm that they have deleted that email. I guess someone will be implementing DLP (Data Loss Prevention) very quickly.
