Computer breach at OSU exposes personal info of 1,700

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Officials say the personal information of some Oregon State University students and faculty members may have been compromised during a computer security breach. The Corvallis Gazette-Times reports a hacker accessed a computer server for the university’s Ecampus online education program this summer, gaining access to records containing the names and OSU email addresses of about 1,700 students and faculty. The university made the announcement on Thursday and said in some cases, the hacker also gained access to their personal mailing addresses and phone numbers.
