University of Mary Washington students information accidentally released
FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP) — About 7,500 University of Mary Washington students' personal information was accidentally disclosed on an online portal that only students and faculty can access.
The Free Lance-Star reports that Mary Washington chief information officer Dana German told students in a memo that the information was removed from the EagleNet portal on May 23 after a student notified the university.
The information included Social Security numbers, students' names and dates of birth.
According to the memo, three students accessed the information before it was removed.
Based on talks with students and the information's limited exposure, German said she doesn't believe there's any threat to students' privacy.
She said university officials regret the incident and have taken steps to make sure it doesn't happen again.
