A team of hackers revealed that they had attacked the University of Washington's system with multiple SQL injections.  The first one was detected and fixed by the University of Washington, but a second one went unnoticed.  The team of hackers released 31 login and password combinations from a user database and 25 WordPress user login, password, and email address combinations.  The attack comes a few weeks after a hacker identified nearly 20 university systems that were vulnerable to SQLi attacks.
