The personal information of students and professionals who attended Murray State was found online. Names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth and other personal information had been posted in a publicly accessible report titled "2000-2001 State Admissions Report." It seems someone manipulated the Excel file to reveal confidential information. The report should have been posted as a PDF. The information was pulled from the website and affected individuals were contacted shortly after Murray was notified of the breach.
