Buffalo Public Schools exposed more than 4,000 records with students’ and parents’ personal information [DISPUTED]
Update: This report has been disputed. BPS claims that their IT department says “this is a dummy test page with no real information.” DataBreaches.net notes that the file was more than 100 pages, populated with information. One record on the first page did appear to be test or dummy data, but because DataBreaches.net did not download the entire file, we are unable to attempt more verification. It did not appear to us or the researcher who found it to be a dummy file, and in some cases, the records appeared to represent multiple children of different ages in the same family. We hope that BPS is right that this was just a “dummy file,” but in the absence of more data, we cannot go further with this at this time and are removing the original post.
