University of Maryland Hacked
Last month, the University of Maryland reported a data breach that affected anyone who has had a campus ID since 1998. That's 16 years of records that included Social Security numbers, date of birth and the University ID number putting nearly 300,000 staffers, students and employees at risk.
Four weeks later, University of Maryland CIO, Ann Wylie reported yet another cyber-intrusion, which brought in the FBI and Secret Service to work with the university's IT security staff. This attack netted the personal data of only a single senior university official, according to Wylie.
