Massive Hacking at U Maryland

From the Washington Post:

Have you studied, taught or worked at the University of Maryland anytime in the past 16 years? If so, proceed with caution: Your personal record may have been hacked. The university said Wednesday it has been hit by a massive data breach, putting 309,079 students, faculty and staff at risk. The breach includes information on anyone issued a campus ID for Maryland's College Park and Shady Grove campuses since 1998. Stolen data include name, Social Security number, date of birth, and university ID number. No other financial, academic, contact or health information appears to have been compromised, according to the university.
