Two campus computers were determined to have been infected by malware.  The breach occurred when a faculty or staff member opened an email that contained a virus.  The virus was immediately detected.  Faculty, staff, and students affiliated with the school between the early 1990's and the day of the breach may have had their names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, and addresses exposed.  Housatonic's president acknowledged that the cost of handling the breach could be as much as $500,000.
