    Names and SSNs are plenty to start an identity theft (though obviously I won’t go into details here).

    Even if they weren’t, the story just says that the equipment contains that information, not that it contains only that information. Most likely there’s a lot more in each record, but giving a comprehensive list adds nothing to the story.
