Two former students at the University of Central Missouri (UCM) have
been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of breaking into
university databases and of stealing and attempting to sell personal
data on about 90,000 UCM students, faculty, staff and alumni. Price for
the data: $35,000.
Joseph Camp, 26, and Daniel Fowler, 21, of Kansas City, Mo. are also
accused of attempting to steal university funds, infecting numerous
university computers with a virus they developed and using their
Facebook accounts to threaten potential witnesses against them. The
charges carry possible prison terms of between two and 10 years.
The seven-count indictment was unsealed Monday upon Fowler's arrest and
initial court appearance. Camp has been in custody in New York for about
a year on unrelated charges and will be transferred to Kansas City to
face charges in related to the UCM hacking, a spokesman for the U.S.
Attorney's Office for the Western District of Missouri said.
In addition to the charges in Kansas City, Camp will also face charges
in New York in connection with his attempt to sell stolen UCM data
there, the spokesman said.
