An unauthorized person reportedly gained access to Dixie State College's
computer system and gained access to confidential files, including Social
Security numbers, birth date information and addresses for some alumni and
current DSC employees.

The college's Information Technology staff became aware of the incident,
which took place Sept. 11. No credit card or financial data was
compromised.

Once DSC officials became aware of the incident, the compromised files,
which contained approximately 11,000 names of those who graduated or
worked at DSC from 1986 to 2005, were immediately deleted from the server.
In addition, law enforcement officials, the Utah State Attorney General's
Office and the Utah Higher Education Commissioner's office were notified.
