INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The state has hired a company to help determine how many people's information was compromised when personal information of at least 14 Indiana welfare clients and as many as 187,000 people was shared with others because of a contractor's computer programming error.

WISH-TV reports the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration has hired I-net Software to determine how many people were affected. The FSSA announced last week said that some of the personal information possibly shared with others included the Social Security numbers of as many as 3,926 clients.

The error occurred April 6 and affected correspondence sent to clients from that date until May 21.
