The University of Connecticut on Friday reported a "criminal cyberintrusion" of its engineering college, and that hackers from China appear responsible. The university said it did not have evidence of data removal. But the university said that it is adopting new security measures as well as informing individuals and sponsors of research that could have been accessed. After Pennsylvania State University reported similar attacks, apparently from China in the case of the university's engineering college, experts warned that other universities would likely see such hacking incidents.

Pennsylvania State University announced Friday that its College of Liberal Arts experienced two cyberattacks. These attacks took place after enhanced security measures were adopted in the wake of a May attack on Penn State's engineering college network. Penn State said that its investigation of the new incidents uncovered "no evidence that personally identifiable information or research data were compromised."
