JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities believe an overseas computer hacker had access to the personal information of nearly 107,000 students from the University of North Florida.
The school announced Friday that the intruder gained access from Sept. 24 to 29 to a server with Social Security numbers, names and dates of birth. The breach was discovered during a routine check of the server. Financial and academic records were not compromised.
The school and FBI are investigating, but authorities declined to provide further details about the case.
The Florida Times-Union reported Saturday that authorities learned of the breach late last month but only recently notified potential victims because the extent of the breach was unclear to investigators.
