FLINT - Computer users on the campus of the University of Michigan-Flint
have been told to consider changing their passwords after hackers broke
into several servers recently.
University computer technicians from the Flint and Ann Arbor campuses
are working with the Flint office of the FBI to determine who was
responsible for the unauthorized access.
The hack was discovered Dec. 6 and university officials said it is still
unknown what data might have been compromised.
The breach was contained shortly after it was found, said university
spokesperson Jen Hogan.
Staff, students and faculty were told about the situation via an e-mail
from the university on Thursday.
Hogan said periodic password changes had already been suggested before
the hack was discovered.
"It's always a good idea," said Hogan.
It was unknown how many computers had access to the servers and no
further information has been released.
