Two Universities Hit By Security Breaches

"Two universities suffered security breaches that compromised the security of sensitive personal information on students and faculty.

Both the University of Iowa and the University of Virginia announced last Friday that they have been sending out notifications about the breaches.

The University of Virginia said its investigation has shown that on 54 separate days between May 20, 2005 and April 19, 2007, a hacker broke into the network and accessed the records of 5,735 faculty members. The school called in the FBI to work on the case alongside the university police and its IT workers. "
