Re: [Dataloss] Many warned about Sacred Heart University computer security breach

I'm wondering..do SAT scores come as (name, ssn, score) tuples?
Schools buy SAT and PSAT scores for marketing purposes, but what do
they get when they buy?

It turns out that they no longer do, but did 4 years ago. See 2nd
link, below.

| The letter turned up in some mailboxes Wednesday advising recipients

| been breeched and that things like their social security numbers may
