NV: Data leak raises questions

The Rebel Yell reports that letters were sent to about 20 students at University of Nevada – Las Vegas College of Sciences after the college discovered a virus had affected one of its computers. The college reportedly found that no data had been leaked.

The story does not indicate what types of personal information were on the computer, but it cites the Graham-Leach-Bliley Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999 as the basis for the legal requirement for the college to notify the students, suggesting that some financial data were on the computer.
