Private information on all 110,000 students enrolled in Kanagawa prefectural
senior high schools in fiscal 2006 was leaked--and remains--on the Internet,
the prefecture's board of education said.

The information includes the students' names, addresses, telephone numbers
and bank account numbers used for paying tuition. The board of education,
IBM Japan and other parties concerned have been unable to remove the data.

So far, there have been no reported cases of the information being abused,
the board said Thursday.

Last September, the board of education received a fax from an anonymous
person, saying private information had been leaked on the Internet through
file-sharing software.
