Someone gained unauthorized access to three computers in Wichita State
University's College of Fine Arts box office and to a university server in
the psychology department.
The intrusion apparently was meant to store music and digital files for
downloading by third parties, WSU said.
The box-office workstations contained credit card information for about
2,000 patrons. This intrusion was discovered June 29, then University
personnel took immediate action to secure the workstations.
The psychology department server held data regarding about 40 applicants to
the department's doctoral program. This intrusion discovered July 18, and
fixed by ending the storing of private information on the psychology
The investigation found a flaw in the way online applications were
processed, which now has been fixed.
"While there is no evidence that any personal information was accessed, we
have sent letters and are taking steps to contact individuals who could
have had their information accessed," said Ravi Pendse, chief information
officer and associate vice president for academic affairs and research.
