Thousands of former IU students personal information exposed

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An internal mistake at IU means 146,000 current and former students had their personal information exposed.

Indiana University says it has shut down a call center line after discovering the computer data breach in February.

The school has not received any reports that anyone's identity was stolen because of the exposure.

Names, addresses and Social Security numbers of those who attended any of IU's campuses from 2011 to 2014 were unsecured for nearly a year because security protections were not working correctly.
