• Personal information possibly leaked from SC unemployment agency


    COLUMBIA, S.C. - Personal information for nearly 5,000 people in South Carolina may have been leaked.

    The unemployment agency said a former worker downloaded files to a personal flash drive, including Social Security numbers.

    Notifications started going out Wednesday to current and former employees, their children and their beneficiaries. No one receiving unemployment benefits was affected.

    South Carolina has seen its share of security problems.

    In fall 2012, someone hacked into the Department of Revenue and stole information from millions of taxpayers.

    The state offered free credit monitoring to everyone affected.
