WOSC security breach

(AP) _ About 1,500 users of the Western Oklahoma State College library may have had social security numbers and other personal information exposed because of a computer breach.

The junior college told students and staff on Monday that the breach is thought to have occurred on Nov. 11.  It wasn't discovered until Feb. 18.

Campus officials say library users since 2004 had their information placed at risk because of the breach.

Officials say they are not aware of any reports of fraud connected with the breach.  Kent Brooks, the campus' Chief Technology Officer, says there is no indication any data was compromised, but the opportunity to access that information existed.  He says students will be tracked by identification numbers in the future.
