At least 18 colleges are scrambling to inform tens of thousands of students they are at risk of having their identities stolen. A laptop computer that was stolen from a vendor contained the data of current and former students from the four state universities, including Western Connecticut State University. The computer was password-protected but contained unencrypted files with personally identifiable data, including names and Social Security numbers.
