Personal Data on 17,500 at Risk in CU-Boulder Security Breach


University of Colorado at Boulder officials today announced that a server in the campus's Academic Advising Center was the subject of a computer attack.

CU-Boulder officials said they had begun the process of notifying 17,500 individuals that their personal information - including names and Social Security numbers - might have been exposed in the attack. CU-Boulder officials are continuing to determine the extent of information exposed.

Employees with CU-Boulder's Information Technology Services office discovered the attack on Dec. 8 and, following CU guidelines, began an investigation to determine how the system compromise occurred.
