COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) - It's a breech in security at the University of
South Carolina. A spokesperson says a computer stolen from the physics
and astronomy department at the end of April may have compromised the
personal information of more than 6,000 students. We're talking names,
e-mail addresses and social security numbers. The affected students
were enrolled in one of four classes, dating back to January 2010.
That's when the laptop was first in use. There's an ongoing
investigation into the incident.
