The University of Wisconsin-Parkside - 27/03/2014

Students were notified by officials from The University of Wisconsin-Parkside of a data breach that occured to their system by hackers that installed malware on one university server. The information that is at risk includes names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses and Social Security numbers. The breach affects students who were either admitted or enrolled at the university since the fall of 2010. The server was shut down and the hacking was reported to local authorities. After launching an investigation it appears the malware was searching for credit card information and they show no evidence that any Social Security numbers were compromised. The university has set up a website with information for those who may have been affected http://www.uwp.edu/explore/contactus/index.cfm
