Administrators began limiting access to the document and the entire email system after the mistake was discovered half an hour later.

Nineteen hundred students and employees had their names and Social Security numbers posted on the Internet from spring of 2004 until the discovery in October of 2005.  A student searched her name and found it listed with her Social Security number on a UT email discussion group site.  Information pertaining to individuals who had either paid or owed small amounts of money to the University was shared among 10 employees and the information technology office.  The information was mistakenly coded as public rather than private.

A list of over 8,000 Comcast user names and passwords were available to the public via Scribd for two months, before a Wilkes University professor discovered it over the weekend after doing a search for his identity online. Comcast is saying it looks like the result of a phishing scam and isn't an inside job, and that there are so many duplicate entries on the list that it's closer to 4,000 customers who were exposed.
