‘TuftsLeaks’ releases documents containing sensitive financial information

Liam Knox reports:

This week, a group calling itself TuftsLeaks published documents online that contain sensitive financial information from Tufts. The leak included department budgets, the salaries of thousands of staff and faculty and the ID numbers of student employees with salaries listed. Only student salaries from fiscal year 2015 were listed in the leaked documents.

These documents were released through a TuftsLeaks website, which was no longer accessible by Thursday evening.

The group’s domain name was purchased on April 29, according to the website’s WHOIS data.
