Depending on the University, I might or might not agree with that.  I
know of several that have DoD funded research projects going on that
require Top Secret clearances just to work on.  Add to that all of the
student data and you've got a pretty good trove of data.  When you
combine that with the notoriously lax security at most of them you've
got real problems waiting to happen.

  .edus have always been among the most widely-hacked targets since back in 
mitnick-days.
