Investigation Into Internal Data Theft Continues

02/27/2016

Jacksonville State University has been informed by the U.S. Secret Service that the website containing stolen computer data belonging to the university has been shutdown.  
 
Meanwhile, JSU police and Information Technology employees, with support and assistance from Secret Service officials and the District Attorney for the Seventh Judicial Circuit of Alabama, continue to investigate the compromising of computer data maintained by the university. 

As has been previously reported, the JSU system was not hacked, but the data posted online was obtained by an internal theft by one or more JSU students through the compromising of a password for a management database used by an institutional office, which maintains limited directory data. There is still no indication that any social security numbers or financial information was compromised. 

JSU will continue to post updates as the investigation continues.
