Notre Dame probes hack of computer system

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 2:01 pm

Two computer-forensic companies are helping the University of Notre Dame investigate an electronic break-in that may have exposed the personal and financial information of school donors.

The hackers may have made off with Social Security numbers, credit card information and check images, Hilary Crnkovich, Notre Dame’s vice president of public affairs, told CNET News.com. She declined to disclose how many donors may be at risk.

“The (computer) server that was potentially affected was taken offline immediately,” Crnkovich said. “The university continues to explore safeguards and precautions to ensure something like this doesn’t happen in the future.”
