A hacker or hackers outside of the US attempted to gain access to an OSU Internet server. Information on the server included names, medical record numbers, and dianoses of 30 patients who visited the pathology department between the late 1980s and 2004.  A roster of students who had received training at the medical center in 2006 was also on the server.  Officials do not believe that any personal information was taken during the attempt. A total of 30 patients and 150 students were notified.
