NY: Computer stolen with students’ information

Jim Dolan of ABC reports:

This school year is getting off to a bit of a rough start for thousands of CUNY [City University of New York] students.

More than 7,000 of them received letters saying their names and Social Security numbers had been stolen.

Now, there is growing concern about overall security at the university.

It was one computer that was stolen, but it contained the names and information of the 7,000 City College of New York students.

The computer was password protected, but it’s out there, and that has left students and their parents wondering who stole it and what they intend to do with it.

As of the time of this posting, there is no notice that I can find up on CUNY’s web site.
