Hawaii Security Breach: Private Info Of 40,000 University Of Hawaii Students Posted Online

The students' Social Security numbers, grades and other private information were made public after a faculty member at the school accidentally posted the information online, according to The Associated Press.

The sensitive information of anyone who attended the school's Manoa campus from 1990 to 1998 or in 2001 was available over the Internet, university spokesman Ryan Mielke told the AP.
