Auburn’s Business school breached

Auburn breach

AUBURN, Ala. (WIAT) — Auburn University’s College of Business’ computer network was hacked in the fall of 2013. While the cyber-attack happened in the fall, it is only now just being announced. The university says it held off on making the breach public until administrators could determine that personal information was compromised. The computer system has been upgraded to prevent further access. The breach happened between October 21st and November 20th of 2013.

The FBI is aware of the situation and is investigating. Personal information for more than 13,000 people was compromised. There is no indication that any of the information has been misused. Auburn is offering people affected by the breach one year of free credit monitoring with Experian.
