College Board Reports E-Mail Security Breach

April 6, 2011

The College Board has announced that some of those to whom it sends e-mail messages have had those addresses captured by a hacker of its e-mail provider. All of those whose e-mail addresses were captured were sent an e-mail, so those who have not been notified should not be affected. The College Board said that names and e-mail addresses -- but not Social Security numbers (which the College Board doesn't have and so were not in danger of being stolen) -- were captured by the hacker.
