Nearly 107,000 at Risk After University of North Florida Data Breach

Kara Reeder

Approximately 107,000 current and prospective students of the University of North Florida may be at risk after their personal information was compromised when a server containing the data was recently discovered to have been breached.


According to Computerworld, half those affected had their names and Social Security numbers exposed. The other half had their names and dates of birth compromised in the incident, which occurred between Sept. 24 and 29.


UNF is not the only college in Florida to have been the victim of a breach this year. In June, Florida International University's College of Education notified 19,000 students and 88 faculty members that their personal information was exposed by an unsecured database. Then in September, 239 University of Florida students' information was compromised following a security breach that may have exposed Social Security numbers and other personal data.
