    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - The names and credit-card numbers of 243,000 Hotels.com customers were on a laptop computer stolen from an employee of accounting firm Ernst & Young, according to sources familiar with the matter.

    Hotels.com, which is owned by Expedia (Research) and Ernst & Young, its auditor, began notifying customers that their information was stolen last week.

    The theft occurred in February, according to news reports, but Ernst & Young only recently was able to determine what was on the computer's hard drive.

    So like I am thinking these places have all this security and then I find out that some employee has all the info on a stupid lap top!! See I was picturing some vault where all the secure info is kept not on some lap top that anyone could pick up like a bag of groceries and take off with!!
