UCLA Warns Students, Staff of Data Theft

The University of California-Los Angeles alerts some 800,000 current and former students, applicants, faculty and staff that their personal information -- names, addresses, Social Security numbers -- were exposed when a hacker broke into a campus computer system.

The university says that only a small percentage of the records in the database were actually accessed. The case may be the largest computer breach ever at an American university.
