University of Southern California Security Breach

Acording to the University of Southern California, a database of about 270,000 records of past applicants to the school was hacked into last month. The records contained the applicants' names and Social Security numbers. Not all the records in the database were accessed.

Apparently the school found out about the security breach from a journalist.

Of course, they are notifying everyone affected about the breach, thanks to the California law enacted in 2003 requiring such notification.
