University of Michigan Warns That Personal Information was Leaked During Cyberattack
The University of Michigan has confirmed that sensitive personal information from students, applicants, employees, and others was leaked during a cyberattack in August. Although the attack was contained by disconnecting the campus network from the internet, the hackers were still able to access certain university systems. The compromised information includes Social Security numbers, driver's license numbers, financial account details, and health information. The university is working with law enforcement and has notified affected individuals, offering free credit monitoring services. It is unclear how many people were affected or whether it was a ransomware attack. Ransomware gangs have recently targeted organizations in Michigan.
