USC says database hacked

A University of Southern California online database containing about 270,000 records of past applicants that included their names and Social Security numbers was hacked last month, officials said yesterday. USC learned of the breach June 20, when it was tipped off by a journalist. It has since shut down the Web site and has notified people whose names and Social Security numbers were in the database of the security breach.
