University of Colorado victim of major Data Breach
The University of Colorado has recently had to reach out to thousands of students to advise them of an unfortunate data breach that has compromised personal information. According to sources, the breach occurred through unpatched software associated with Atlassian Corporation Plc, the software program was used by the school’s information office to provide access to resourceful files and documentation. Within these stored files, was personal information for current and former students, including student identification numbers, name, date of birth, address, and more. The school had announced that thankfully no social security numbers have been compromised during the attack. As of now, the school has not been able to identify who was behind the data breach but has announced that the necessary patches have been updated by Atlassian Corporation to the software program. After the necessary patchwork was completed, the school began testing the program to assure that implementation can safely be completed.
