No data accessed in server hack, Algonquin says

June 16, 2015

Algonquin College has reported that an unauthorized party accessed one of its servers, possibly compromising some students’ personal information. Upon discovery of the incident, Algonquin immediately shut down the server and launched a security investigation. The investigation did not uncover any evidence of data theft, but did reveal a number of other intrusions. According to Algonquin, the incident only affected students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, delivered jointly with the University of Ottawa, in the years 2007 and 2008, and those enrolled in the Bachelor of Information Technology program, delivered jointly with Carleton University, from 2008–2012.
