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.

A doctor at the fertility clinic lost a flash drive that was used to back up his computer. The drive held details of infertility treatments for 3,100 patients going back to 1999. The lost drive included names, birthdates, and in some cases, diagnostic information, details of treatments, whether or not patients had conceived, baby names, and birth weights -- but apparently no SSNs or financial information.
