Vol State: Personal information found vulnerable for 14,000 students, faculty
About 14,000 students, former students and faculty at Volunteer State Community College in Gallatin had personal information placed on a web server that was not secure.
The files placed on the web included names and Social Security numbers, but university officials say there is no evidence that any of that information has been accessed or used inappropriately. No credit card or financial information was included in the files.
Bruce Scism, interim president, said the university is notifying the affected students and faculty members as a precaution.
