Bowling Green State University is notifying current and former
students of accounting professor Dr. W. David Albrecht that a computer
flash drive with information about them has been lost. Files on the
portable storage device contained Social Security numbers for 199
students from his classes in 1992, and the names, grades and
University identification numbers but not the Social Security
numbers for approximately 1,600 other students.

There is no indication that any information on the missing flash drive
has been accessed in any way, and there was no system breach or
hacking of the University's computer systems.

The University has sent letters to those affected and has posted a
notice on its Web site encouraging current and former students who may
have taken Albrecht's classes to contact the BGSU College of Business
Administration. BGSU has been monitoring its systems and processes for
evidence that information contained on the lost flash drive is being
misused, but no such evidence has yet been uncovered.
