AL: Juvenile suspect arrested in JSU student data breach

First his Twitter account was suspended. Then he was arrested. That’s probably why he didn’t respond to an email inquiry from this site.

There’s an update to the JSU breach reported yesterday. William Thornton reports that a juvenile has been arrested by order of the District Court of Calhoun County and is being detained by the Coosa Valley Regional Detention Center.

In a statement JSU officials said that “a peripheral system with limited information was accessed on campus and placed online.”

“The compromised information was the result of an internal security violation and not the result of an external ‘hack,'” the school said.

Those impacted include students who have been accepted for admission. However, JSU officials said there is no evidence that Social Security numbers, credit cards or any other banking information has been compromised.
