An unnamed check printing vendor for the University copied data from the University's cashier's office during software upgrades.  The information included 30,000 to 40,000 checks that contained student and employee names, University IDs, check numbers, and check amounts.  Current and former student, faculty, and staff records older than 2004 may have included Social Security numbers. it does not appear that the vendor acted with malicious intent.
