Hacker Compromises Personal Info at UCCS

Officials at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs say a hacker has compromised personal information of hundreds of employees.

They say someone who hacked into a computer Friday accessed names, social security numbers, birth dates and addresses for about 2,500 current and former employees dating back to 2004.

The person also infected the computer with a virus.

So far there have been no reports that the information was used.

UCCS information technology director Jerry Wilson says the computer was one of seven at the school infected by a virus that spread rapidly worldwide Friday and flooded networks with messages.
