Hacking News: The server stores a database of names, addresses and social security numbers of UNCW employees, including part-time and temporary employees.
It also contains the details of graduate students, adjunct instructors, and people who took a foreign language placement test at the university between 2002 and 2006. In a notice published on its website, the educational institution says that there’s no evidence that the information has been accessed by the cybercriminals, or that it has been misused. It appears that the cybercriminals abused the server to host a phishing page. The attackers somehow gained access to the password for an administrator account.
