wiredmikey (1824622) writes "Southern California Medical-Legal Consultants, Inc. (SCMLC), a California company that represents medical providers in the recovery of billing from workers’ compensation insurance carriers, announced that data containing the names and social security numbers of approximately 300,000 individuals who have applied for California workers’ compensation benefits had been exposed to unauthorized access. SCMLC said it was notified of the exposed data by a security firm that discovered some of the files that had been indexed by Google.

SCMLC’s clients have included the largest hospital companies in the country as well as health insurers, HMO, large public hospitals, medical groups and union health trusts."
