UCLA Reports Data Breach Affecting 800,000

UCLA has announced a security breach which may have allowed hackers to access personal information on 800,000 former and current students, parents of students, staff and faculty.

Given that this appears to be a deliberate attempt to access information held by the school from the outside, it raises more concern that the average lost laptop or other security breach. The school even said that the hackers seemed to looking for names and Social Security Numbers. UCLA said the FBI is investigating.

UCLA is notifying all the people involved. Many businesses in this situation offer the people notified free credit monitoring, but UCLA may consider that expensive. They are not required to do so by law.
