USC Sumter Reports Security Breach
A computer security breach has been reported at the University of South Carolina-Sumter.
Letters were sent out on March 1 that the university learned that 31,000 computer files containing confidential, personally identifiable information, including people's Social Security numbers became accessible to the public on a USC Sumter website.
USC spokeswoman Margaret Lamb says the breach was discovered in January on a computer server at USC Sumter. Lamb says the university has no evidence that anyone's personal information was compromised.
