UConn Reports Data Breach by Chinese Hackers

August 3, 2015

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.
