Personal information of 160 students exposed for three weeks on Temple website

Kelly Brennan reports:

The personal information of 160 Temple University students was exposed after an employee accidentally uploaded a document containing information like dates of birth, cell phone numbers and passport information to a public university website.

An employee in Temple’s Risk Management office uploaded the document to the Temple University Travel Registry Site on March 22 where it was public for about three weeks before it was taken down, said Larry Brandolph, Temple’s chief information security officer and vice president of Computer Service and Infrastructure.

Affected students were notified on May 22 that their names, passport numbers, issuing passport country, passport issue date, dates of birth, travel dates and cell phone numbers were exposed on the website.
