Summary: Yesterday, hacktivist group GhostShell claimed to have breached 100 top university servers, releasing 120,000 records. But how much information was sensitive?
"Records stolen from university databases including the University of Michigan, New York University, Princeton and Harvard were made publicly available yesterday, after hacker group leader 'DeadMellox' tweeted a link to the release posted on Pastebin.
The group claimed to have released just a fraction of what they managed to obtain in campaign "Project WestWind", but it still apparently amounted to 120,000 sets of data.
GhostShell has cited tuition fees, political agendas, tough teaching regulations and job uncertainty for graduates as reasons for the campaign."
