UCLA Psychology Dept. database hacked (again?)

Via Cyber War News, it seems that a UCLA Department of Psychology faculty database was hacked by Inj3ctor. Much of the data represent the names of departmental programs with corresponding names, e-mail addresses, and/or phone numbers and are just directory information, but there is also a dump of applicant information that reveals 26 applicants’ first and last names, gender, date of birth, and full mailing address.   There is also a user dump with 40 usernames and passwords (not clear-text), two of which are administrative passwords. The hacker also lists available open ports.

This is not the first time that the department database has been dumped on Pastebin. In July 2011, another hacker posted psychology department faculty’s phone number, first and last name, e-mail address, street address, and UCLA ID number.

I sent an e-mail to UCLA’s Department of Psychology via their contact form to alert them to the breach, but have not heard back yet.
