Wesley College mistakenly posts private student records online

Nichole Dobo reports:

Wesley College published more than a dozen records online that revealed the test scores, grades and written critiques of more than 100 students.

The Dover-based private college was not the victim of someone hacking into its system. Instead, the records were posted in 2011 by someone at the school in a folder that was not password protected.

College officials removed the files from public access almost immediately after The News Journal inquired Tuesday about the records. The files were discovered by a reporter during a Google search.
