WA: Clark College issues alert after potential security breach

Fox12 News reports:

An alert has been issued because of a potential database security breach at Clark College in Vancouver.

An email, sent out to employees of the school, stated there was unauthorized access to college computer records that resulted in the potential disclosure of some faculty and student information.

School authorities are encouraging people to change their personal identification numbers as a precaution.

Details about the potential breach haven’t been released.

Indeed, I don’t see anything on the college’s web site at this time, but will keep an eye out for additional information on this.

Clark College is not a name I generally see associated with data breaches, and the only prior incident I am aware of was an incident involving some files with student information that were discovered in an off-campus trash bin in 2007.

    What information are they supposed to change? It almost sounds like email and password info. Certainly they don’t expect people to change SSNs! Another case of a bad notice. This is almost worse than no information. It will definitely cause confusion.
