Central Oregon Community College Hackers May Have Compromised Student Information
1110 KBND points us to a statement on the Central Oregon Community College web site:
Central Oregon Community College officials have identified some information on the COCC web site that may have been exposed as part of the recent unauthorized intrusion. COCC has taken down the web site while it works with law enforcement officials and industry security experts. It has been replaced by a single page with links to sites of importance to COCC students, faculty and staff but that are not part of the COCC web site. Email access is available via this temporary page.
Comprehensive student and employee information is NOT contained on the COCC website. The college is analyzing information to see if there is any additional cause for concern of personally identifiable information being accessed or any additional data bases which might have been exposed.
The information identified was from students who applied to the COCC nursing program for the current year, and for COCC Foundation scholarship for the next year. Neither set of applications include social security numbers or credit card numbers. They do include email addresses and COCC ID numbers.
