Hackers Breach Connecticut College Library System

Via The Hartford Courant.

A Connecticut College library system was breached by hackers apparently looking to set up chat rooms or send spam e-mails, the school reported Friday.

The hackers broke into two servers holding data for a consortium of Connecticut College, Wesleyan University and Trinity College. The servers are located at the consortium's headquarters at Wesleyan.

The database includes the names, addresses and Social Security or driver's license numbers of approximately 2,800 Connecticut College library patrons, 12 Wesleyan University patrons and three from Trinity.
