Scariest Newspaper Disclaimer of the Week

At the top of the Boston Globe's website:

TTN. Boston Globe subscribers: Confidential credit and bank card account information of Boston Globe and Worcester Telegram & Gazette subscribers who pay for their home delivery subscriptions by credit card was recently inadvertently disclosed on the back of slips used to label bundles of the Worcester Sunday Telegram. The bank routing information of some Telegram & Gazette subscribers who pay by automatic withdrawal may also have appeared on some of these newspaper bundle sheets.
Could a mistake of that magnitude possibly have happened by accident? Yikes. I'll leave further analysis to my former colleagues at Bank Security News.
