University of Arizona notifies former law students of computer breach

TUCSON, AZ - Former law students at the University of Arizona are being notified an unauthorized intruder may have accessed their personal information.

According to a press release issued Wednesday, the suspect accessed a server hosting the College of Law public website in late July.

Old class rosters, names and social security numbers stored on the server in error were potentially accessible during the breach, UA News says.

Also, usernames and passwords for the College of Law intranet were stored on the now offline server. The school suggests students change their passwords to be safe.

The university bought a year's subscription of credit monitoring for those affected by the breach to monitor their credit activity, UA News says.

Over 9,000 people are being notified by personal letter from the University. The university police and FBI were notified and the FBI is still investigating.
