University of Maryland student data displayed online

Andy Williams   ||   Feb 20, 2012  ||   

Information for 1,600 freshmen and sophomores in the College Park Scholars program at the University of Maryland was inadvertently posted to a public Web site, university officials said.

The information, which was on the site for a month, included names, university ID numbers and student ID magnetic-stripe numbers.

While the university said the site only had 30 viewers, officials decided to issue new ID cards to students in the program. College Park Scholars is a residential community for academically talented freshmen and sophomores.

The information stored on the site has no use outside the university, a spokesman said, but it could be used to enter a residence hall or use dining points if someone had the means to reproduce a student ID card.

It was “purely by human error” that the information landed on the site, said a university official. The information posted did not include Social Security numbers, email addresses or phone numbers.
