Cyberattack on Penn State exposes passwords of 18K people - CNET

"Pennsylvania State University's College of Engineering revealed Friday that it has been the target of two "highly sophisticated" cyberattacks over the last two years.

University President Eric Barron issued an apology Friday that said usernames and passwords from more than 18,000 people may have been accessed. However, investigators did not find evidence that credit card and social security numbers were stolen, Barron said. Another statement from the school said a security company hired by the university to investigate the attacks concluded that at least one of the assaults originated from China."
