Sacramento State Security Breach Affects 1,800 Employees
University employees' Social Security numbers and driver's license numbers may have been accessed by hackers.
CBS Sacramento reports that the personal information of 1,800 employees of California State University Sacramento (Sacramento State) may have been compromised after hackers compromised a university server in late August (h/t SC Magazine).
After a month spent determining the scope of the breach, the university just recently began notifying affected employees. A university representative told CBS that after determining who had been affected, it then took the school three weeks to prepare and send notification letters.
According to CBS, the information potentially exposed includes Social Security numbers and driver's license numbers. At this point, however, Sacramento State says there's no indication that any identity theft has resulted from the breach.
