A laptop computer containing names, social security numbers and other sensitive information of 161,000 current and former employees of Boeing Co. was stolen recently, the U.S. aerospace manufacturer said Friday.

“We are taking a number of steps to minimize any potential damage that could result from this violation of our security procedures,” Rick Stephens, Boeing human resources senior vice president, said in a statement.

Some of the employee information on the laptop included banking information and birth dates, Boeing said, adding that there was no evidence any of the information was misused. The laptop was not stolen from a Boeing site, the company said. They did not say where the theft took place.
