Another Data Hacking

UCLA officials are notifying about 32,000 people about a cyberattack on a university computer server containing personal information about some students, although officials said Friday they do not believe the hacker actually obtained any sensitive information.
According to UCLA, the attack was aimed at a Summer Sessions and International Education Office server that contains information such as students' names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, health insurance IDs and some student-reported medical information.
"Extensive forensic analysis of the attack does not show that the attacker actually accessed or acquired any personal information on the server," according to the university. "However, that possibility cannot be conclusively ruled out."
The attack did not threaten any information provided by students on or after April 13, 2016, UCLA officials said.
