A group of volunteers discovered school materials inside of a public dumpster.  There were folders containing sensitive student records among textbooks, novels, and workbooks. The folders contained student Social Security numbers, health records, grade reports, and student education forms.  An administrative error meant that custodians discarded obsolete materials that had been stored.  The items should have been delivered to the district's central warehouse or sold to used-book dealers. The items were recovered and transmitted to the correct locations.

Hackers associating themselves with Anonymous claim to have obtained 12 million Apple Unique Device Identifiers (UDIDs) by hacking an FBI agent's laptop.  The hackers offered proof of the breach by posting over one million UDIDs. However, both Apple and the FBI are denying that an FBI agent would have access to that information and keep it on a laptop. The hack occurred in March. Apple replaced the types of identifiers the hackers appear to have obtained and will discontinue their use.
