The US National Archives have reported that a hard drive containing Social Security numbers, addresses, as well as Secret Service and White House operating procedures has come up missing, reports the AP.
The missing information is from the Clinton administration and includes one of former Vice President Al Gore’s three daughters’ Social Security number. Congressional officials, logs of events, social gatherings, and sensitive political records were also on the drive.

“The drive contains an as yet unknown amount of personally identifiable information of White House staff and visitors,” the statement added.
The FBI has started a criminal investigation into the case of the missing 1 terabyte disk, which is said to have been lost between October 2008 and March 2009.
The archives had started transferring all information into a digital records system when the disk vanished. An anonymous aide said that the disk had been left on a shelf unused for an uncertain period of time when he tried to resume work and found it missing. It is still to be ascertained how large the breach is.
