Officials urge people to be on alert for fraud
While it's unclear whether a hacker stole the personal information of
38,941 current and former University of Alaska Fairbanks students, faculty
and staff, authorities believe the announcement that it might have
happened will certainly lead to fraud attempts.
"In an event like this, when you take this to the media to assist getting
the information out, it turns around and bites us a little," said Sean
McGee, UAF's acting police chief.
Officials have provided a Web site at www.uaf.edu/security with several
pages of information available to those who might have had their names,
Social Security numbers and partial e-mail addresses stolen by a hacker
who installed an unauthorized program on a university computer server.
