Yale Student and Faculty Information Stolen
Two computers stolen from Yale University last month contained the Social Security numbers of about 10,000 current and former students and about 200 faculty and staff members, university officials said Wednesday.
“As it explained in the notification letters, the university does not believe that this incident presents a significant danger of identity theft because the crime was almost certainly aimed at obtaining hardware for sale _ not at exploiting the data that were on the computers,” Yale said in a statement. “Moreover, both of the computers were password-protected, and one was protected by multiple password levels, which would require considerable computer savvy to bypass.”
