University Server Breached Again
DATA LOSS—U.S.June 12, 2012
SC Magazine reports that hackers have gained access to a University of North Florida (UNF) server containing confidential student information. The breach, which affects more than 23,000 students, marks the second time in two years that hackers have accessed a UNF database. The current breach includes names and Social Security numbers on housing contracts, the report states, while the 2010 hack involved a server containing "personal information of nearly 107,000 UNF students and others who have expressed interest in the college." UNF is offering one year of free credit monitoring to those affected by the most recent breach.
