Yale Discloses Data Breach

The university discloses that someone stole personal information a long time ago.

Yale University has just disclosed that it suffered a data breach including names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, and, in some cases, email addresses and physical addresses of certain individuals. And that is nearly as specific as the disclosure from the university gets.

According to Yale, sometime between April 2008 and January 2009 someone gained access to a database and exfiltrated information. The database was purged of personally identifiable information in 2011, but it wasn't until June 2018 that the university discovered a breach had taken place.

The university says that, due to the time that has passed, there is no way of knowing who the attacker was. The school has, it says, notified all affected individuals and offered credit monitoring to U.S. residents on the list.
