TX: Herff Jones data breach leaves students’ bank information compromised

Haya Panjwani reports:

A data breach at UH [University of Houston] graduation cap and gown vendor, Herff Jones, has some students’ bank information compromised.

Mariah Ochoa, a psychology senior, tweeted about her debit card information being stolen on Sunday, and received numerous replies of students having similar experiences.

“I ordered my cap and gown back in February or March,” Ochoa told the Cougar. “Just a few days ago, I received an email and phone call from my bank stating that my card information was hacked, but no money was taken from my account.”

No notice appears on Herff Jones’s web site at this time. DataBreaches.net has sent an inquiry seeking details of the incident and will update this post if a response is received.
