OSU notifying individuals of data security breach

Joce DeWitt reports:

Oregon State Police currently are investigating a security breach by a vendor who, while under contract to Oregon State University, copied information from a check register data base without permission. The action could have compromised the private information of 21,000 students and employees who were associated with OSU between 1996 and 2009.


The 30,000 to 40,000 checks contained information such as names, OSU ID, date, check number and the amount of the check. Records after 2004 did not include Social Security numbers.
