Hacker May Got University Of Georgia Student Info

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 12:00 pm

The University of Georgia said a computer hacker may have accessed the names and Social Security numbers of at least 1,600 current and former employees.

The university was working with state and federal authorities to investigate the breach, which was discovered Sept. 19.

“To this point there has been no evidence, direct or indirect, that any of this information has actually been misused,” said Arnett C. Mace Jr., the school’s provost.

University officials say 2,429 Social Security numbers were exposed, but there was some repetition and the number of affected people is expected to be smaller.
