(update: another unrelated incident exposes another 3,500)
On March 31 or April 1, a hacker using a foreign web address cracked a
university firewall and accessed the names, Social Security numbers,
employee ID numbers and birth dates of more than 14,000 current and former
staff members, according to a university statement.
In an unrelated incident, the personal information of about 3,500 current
and former chemistry students was compromised when two laptop computers
were stolen from the home of a university professor on Feb. 24.
The laptops were likely not the target of the burglary, and were stolen
with a number of other household items, according to Lynch.
Records stored in the laptops contained names, Social Security numbers and
grades, according to the university.
