Data Breach at UCLA

Consumer Affairs reports:

Hackers have gained access to databases at the University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA), making off with the personal information of 800,000 current and former students, employees, and faculty.

The data breach is thought to be the largest of its kind at an American college or university.

I've always said it's less about the security of the system than it is the value of the data stolen. If it weren't so easy to use and abuse people's personal data, then ID Theft wouldn't be such a problem.

With Credit Seucrity Freezes, a crook could have all your data and still do nothing with it.
