Nearly 8K Georgia Tech students had personal info leaked in email gaffe

Jonathan Carlson reports:

The CBS46 Bulldog learned exclusively of an accidental breach of records at Georgia Tech involving everything from grades to home addresses.

Georgia Tech tells CBS46 that nearly 8,000 students were impacted.

“It is kind of uncomfortable, ya know,” one student told us on campus.

Students are reacting after a staffer in the College of Computing inadvertently attached a spreadsheet containing confidential student data and blasted it out to students in a mass email.

Some of the data shared included:

  • ID numbers
  • Home address
  • Visa info
  • GPA
  • Academic standing
  • Hours earned
