13,700 Nihon U. staffers have data leaked online

Personal data on at least 13,700 Nihon University personnel has been leaked on the Internet, according to the university.

The leak occurred when a school official brought the data home with him on his personal computer, on which the Winny file-sharing software had been installed.

According to the school’s public relations office, the leaked data includes employee addresses, personnel records and notes from school committee meetings. Students’ addresses were not among the data, but the university is still unsure if it included students’ names.
