Another University System Suffers Breach

The University of Georgia says it is working with state and federal officials to determine if a computer hacker accessed the names and Social Security numbers of more than 1,600 current and former employees. Most of the employees work in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, one of the largest of the university's 15 colleges, according to Tom Jackson, a UGA spokesman.

However, the breach may also affect others who have received payments from the college, he said.

University officials believe 2,429 Social Security numbers were exposed, but say many of those were duplicated numbers, which likely drops the number exposed by one-third. Another University System Suffers Breach
