Stolen University of Idaho Computers Likely Has Personal Data of 70k


Three desktop computers have disappeared from the University of Idaho’s Advancement Services office – and now school officials say the personal data of alumni, donors, employees and students may be in danger.

UI says someone stole the computers – and an internal investigation shows that as many as 70,000 social security numbers, names and addresses were stored on the hard drives six months before the theft.

School officials tell NewsChannel 7 that it is unclear if the data was still on the computers at the time of the theft.
