A database within the University of Wisconsin-Madison Law School that contained Social Security numbers and name pairs corresponding with 1,213 Law School applicants for 2005-’06 was hacked last month, the university announced Tuesday.

The university became aware Nov. 3 that the database had been breached, and sent notices to those affected Dec. 6, offering them free credit monitoring for a year to help protect them against identity theft. No other personal identification information was contained in the files, according to a news release.
