Ohio State exposes student information via email

CampusIDNews Staff   ||   Oct 20, 2011  ||   

Ohio State Student Service Center (SSC) had a “facepalm” event happen after mistakenly sending out an email to students containing the names, student ID numbers, email address and outstanding balances on some 2,500 students.

According to campus newspaper, The Lantern, an email was sent to a group of students with outstanding, unpaid fees on their account. However, inadvertently attached with the email was an Excel spreadsheet with the personal information regarding all students with outstanding fees.

SSC sent out a follow up email clearing the air, informing students of their error. Director of communication for the enrollment services at OSU said the email was the result of a simple human error and that students do not need to be concerned with identity theft.

Some students still voiced their concern regarding the information leak, and the possibility of other students forwarding the information on to other people. While other students said had it not been for the second email they would have no clue that the incident even occurred.
