The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee was victimized in a recent security breach, potentially exposing the personal information including Social Security numbers of approximately 75,000 students, faculty and staff, according to the Journal Sentinel.

UWM officials currently have evidence that data was viewed or stolen but - taking the proper precautions - it is still sending out letters to those potentially affected by the breach.

Software enabling unauthorized access into a UWM database was detected on a system used for scanning and view documents. That system is used by several departments for managing a variety of documents, including applications processing.
