Ohio State Notifies of Unauthorized Access to University Server

No evidence personal data acquired

Ohio State University is notifying past and present students, faculty, staff and others that a university computer server was illegally accessed by unauthorized individuals. Because there is no evidence that any information was taken, the university does not believe that this incident will result in identity theft for any of the affected individuals. However, it is taking a cautious approach and choosing to offer free credit protection services.

All individuals whose information was in the system are being offered 12 months of free credit protection to help safeguard against harm from misuse of personal information. For additional information, individuals should visit: http://www.osu.edu/creditsafety
