Personal info, Social Security numbers for lacrosse players posted on MLL website

WHEC reports:

Major League Lacrosse is investigating a massive data leak that exposed every individual player’s personal information.

According to an email the league sent to all players Monday evening — that was in turn sent to News10NBC by a player — a link on one of their website pages mistakenly re-directed browsers to a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet contained every player in the league’s names, phone numbers, email and mailing addresses, Social Security numbers and more.

Read more on WHEC. That “more” in the personal info sentence was defined in the email sent to players as:

full name, address, telephone number, email address, Social Security number, citizenship, date of birth, height, weight, position, college, graduation year, team, and non-MLL occupation.

According to the MLL, they have 230 players in 9 teams.
