Southern New Hampshire U. still investigating database leak exposing over 140,000 records

Steve Ragan reports:

Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) says they’re still investigating how a database containing some student and class information was exposed to the public. The database was discovered by researcher Chris Vickery shortly before Christmas.

Vickery turned to Salted Hash for assistance in resolving the matter, as previous attempts to contact the university were stalled due to a lack of contact options.


The exposed SNHU database contains more than 140,000 records including student names, email addresses, and IDs; as well as other class-related details such as course name, course section, assignment details and assignment score. The database also contains instructor names and email addresses.
