Forensic analysis of a breach at the University of Maine has revealed that data from 2,818 individuals was compromised when hackers accessed a server, the Bangor Daily News reports. Used in conjunction with the University of Arkansas (UoA), the server contained customer information--including Social Security and credit card numbers--from a university computer store. According to the university's information technology chief, the school had planned to phase out the server but kept it running because UoA was still using it. Upon learning of the breach, the server was shut down.
