A hacker was able to access SJSU's Associated Students information.  Associated Students is a student-run non-profit that manages and hosts many SJSU campus services, but it's IT infrastructure is separate from SJSU's.  The hacker claimed to have 10,000 student Social Security numbers and driver's license numbers, but it is unclear if this information was actually exposed.  The hacker claimed to use an SQL injection to access the information.  In addition to Social Security numbers and driver's license numbers, information such as administrative materials, job applications, work schedules, email addresses and passwords from the past 10 years may have been accessed. SJSU denies that information this sensitive was accessed.
