People who had an unclaimed check or refund from the University of Florida had their Social Security numbers posted on Florida's Unclaimed Property website.  The information had been posted in July of 2005 and is from debts prior to that time, but had been posted through January 12, 2012.  The University submitted its Annual Unclaimed Property Report to the Florida State Department of Financial Services.  The state accidentally posted the Social Security numbers in addition to the usual information.  The University of Florida was the only entity affected by the mistake.  Students, employees, and vendors may have been affected.
