Data exposed in Huron server breach

March 18, 2009

Huron University College, affiliated with the University of Western Ontario, is trying to reach former students, applicants, and residents of the school's dormitories whose personal information may have been accessed after unauthorized software was found on the school's server. The software was removed immediately upon discovery and steps were taken to secure the server. Although an investigation has found that the software was not used to obtain data, Huron is encouraging affected individuals to check for evidence their personal information has been used in any illegal activity.
