Ferris State University is warning current and potential students after
the theft of a laptop that contained student data.

[.]

The computer contains personal information about applicants for 2007-2008
students, including names, addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth,
email addresses, academic information and student identification numbers.
The thief would have to get through two layers of password protection to

Up to 18,000 current and potential students could be affected. University
administrators tell WZZM 13 News they are more concerned about students
receiving unsolicited emails or mailers, rather than identity theft.
