370,000 current, former Auburn students had personal data exposed on website, university says

Auburn University is investigating a data security incident that could have exposed the personal information of about 370,000 current, former and prospective students.

The university said in a statement today that it learned on March 2 that some information stored on one of the university’s servers mistakenly became accessible online.

The university has launched an investigation to identify and correct the issue.

“Auburn moved immediately to secure the personal information of about 370,000 current, former and prospective students when we learned last month that certain data was inadvertently exposed,” the university stated.

The university says there’s no evidence that anyone’s information was misused, but “out of an abundance of caution” its contacting everyone impacted and providing guidance and resources to help them protect their identities.

“Based on findings to date, we believe that personal information for current, former and prospective students was inadvertently accessible between Sept. 1, 2014, and March 2, 2015,” the university stated.

The records included: name, address, email address, birth date, Social Security number and academic information. No payment card, bank or financial account information was involved, according to the university.
