UCLA Hacked

Looks like USC isn’t the only LA university with a computer security problem. Thankfully, USC’s was much smaller in scope (270,000 names and the hacker plead guilty). UCLA’s will affect a lot more people, and there are multiple unknown hackers which will probably never be caught. A database containing 800,000 individuals and their personal information, including SSNs and contact info, was illegally accessed– probably from off-campus. And it has been compromised since October 2005 (and is just now being discovered, in December 2006). UCLA’s official website on the matter.
