The personal information of former, prospective, and current undergraduate
students at Eastern Illinois University may have been stolen when a hacker
gained access to the university’s Office of Admissions server.

How many victims? 9,000.

What type of personal information? Unspecified data from student files and
applications.

What happened? A machine was infected with the Virut computer virus, which
spread to two other computers and the university’s Office of Admissions server.
The server became infected with a number of viruses, some of which gave
attackers the ability to access it.

The breach was discovered Nov. 16 during a routine security check.
