Possible Information Leak At KSU Department

KSAL StaffSeptember 4, 2014

Kansas State University officials say personal information from applicants for its graduate program in agronomy might have been exposed on the Internet.

The university said Wednesday that it notified 19 people who applied for the program between 2010 and 2013 about the possible problem, which did not involve outside hackers. Information from 56 other applicants was exposed but the school said that information wasn’t likely to result in credit fraud.

Spokesman Jeff Morris says the error happened when student information was being moved into a central management system. Morris says a small number of the tens of thousands of pages that were moved were not property protected.

The school says the files were removed when the problem was discovered Aug. 22.
