Dartmouth computer hackers
Hackers hit the computer system at Dartmouth College last week and got access to sensitive information about thousands of employees and students.
Larry Levine, Dartmouth's chief information officer, said he did not know for sure what the hackers' purpose was. He said one of the compromised computer servers contained information on college employees, retired employees and their families. Other servers involved contained research data and staff and student immunization information.
Levine said perhaps as many as 10,000 people could be affected. As of Saturday, he said no one had reported any suspicious charges on their credit cards or any other indications that personal information had been tapped.
