Notre Dame University Hacked

Hacker causes Notre Dame's first significant computer security intrusion.

The personal and financial information of some University donors may be at risk after an unknown intruder hacked into a Development Office server Jan. 13 - the first computer security breach of its magnitude at Notre Dame, University officials said Sunday.

The data in question - possibly including Social Security numbers, credit card information and check images from donations made between Nov. 22, 2005 and Jan. 12 - pertains to a "minority" of alumni donors and friends of the University, said Hilary Crnkovich, vice president
of Public Affairs and Communication. She declined to provide a specific estimate of the number of donors affected.

The intrusion was not initiated from an on-campus location, Crnkovich said, but its source is still a mystery.
