DATA LOSS—U.S.March 16, 2012
Officials at the University of Tampa (UT) are notifying about 30,000 students, alumni, faculty and staff that their personal data may have been compromised. FOX reports that the breach occurred as a result of three data files being made public. According to a statement on UT's website, a "server management error" is to blame, and there has been no evidence of malicious use. The files included such information as names, Social Security numbers, UT identification numbers, photos and, in some instances, dates of birth. The university is providing identity protection services.
