Fresno State says that the personal information data of about 15,000 people may have been exposed after a hard drive was stolen.

In a news release, the university says that the external drive contained information on former student-athletes, sports-camp attendees, and Athletic Corporation employees. The data files may have contained names, addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth, full or last four digits of Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, driver's license numbers, passport numbers, usernames and passwords, health-insurance numbers and personal health information.

The vast majority of data files were from 2003 to 2014. About 300 of the affected people are still currently affiliated with the University.
