Possible UCSF data breach exposes data of 46,000 people

Posted by Humphrey Cheung

San Francisco (CA) - 46,000 students and employees at the University of California San Francisco may have had their personal information stolen in a data breach, according to university officials.  The breach was discovered a few weeks ago in late March and the affected servers were immediately taken offline.

The servers contained personal and financial data which included social security numbers, bank account numbers and names.  While the servers did appear to be compromised, school officials say there is no evidence that the information was accessed or copied – a phrase that we hear all too often in these types of cases.

The school has notified all students and employees that were enrolled or employed in the last two years.
