UK: 8,000 students caught up in email security breach
Graeme Paton reports:
The details of more than 8,000 students were sent out by Student Finance England as part of a mass email distribution following a blunder by staff.
Last night, the agency apologised for the error which they put down an administrative error.
It has since contacted all students involved to assure them that “no other personal” data was shared.
