Comment: Same Thing, Different Place (Score 1) 148

As I'm reading this article, I receive an email that tells me that the same thing happened to "Approximately 5,000 students, faculty, and staff at the University of Texas at Dallas". Why does this keep happening? Schools need to be more careful with information they demand from students, and students need to be more reactive when something like this happens. We trust the school with "names, addresses, Social Security numbers, email addresses and telephone numbers" whether we like it or not. So when something like this happens, we should do something about it.
