Cal Poly, 31,077 SSNs, Hacker

Notices went out on Thursday to 31,077 people informing them that their records might have been stolen after Cal Poly Pomona discovered two computer servers were compromised in late June.

“We got hit by a hacker,’ said Debra Brum, interim vice president of instructional and information technology.

Personal data, including names and Social Security numbers of university applicants and of current and former faculty, staff and students were accessed in the security breach.
