University of Hawaii officials made an announcement that a hacker was able to breach the security of a parking office server, which contained the personal information of some 53,000 people, according to the Honolulu Star Advertiser.
Officials say that there were a total of 40,870 Social Security Numbers and 200 credit cards that were possibly compromised.
A spokesman for the university said the breach was noticed during a routine audit carried out June 15, in which discovered that someone gained unauthorized access on May 30 to a computer server used by the UH parking office.
The server contained personal information, including names, Social Security numbers, addresses, driver license numbers, vehicle information and credit card information.
There was no indication as to whether any of the information was viewed or downloaded by the hacker, and the matter has been turned over to the Honolulu police, the FBI and UH’s forensics investigator.
