Nazareth Area School District: Student hacked into student, teacher data files

Michelle Merlin reports that Nazareth Area School District has sent out about 5,000 letters to families and teachers after discovering that a student accessed data and uploaded it onto a flash drive between 2011 and 2014.

District Superintendent Dennis Riker said the old data contained student information from the district’s lunch program as well as information from a drive used by teachers in the high school, middle school and intermediate school.

The district’s lunch program files contained personal details limited to student names, addresses, dates of birth, and parents’ names.
