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.

The firewall protecting computerized records was accidentally left inactive for nine months.  It was disabled during maintenance in August of 2010, but was never restored.  The problem was discovered when IT staff assisted an employee on May 18, 2011.  It appears that an electronic medical record for the clinic that was stored on the server was never accessed during that time.  Other information on the server included scanned images of drivers licenses and insurance cards.  There is also no evidence that these records were accessed, downloaded or printed.
