GMU Intrusion

Earlier this week a server containing information used to create IDs at George Mason University was reported compromised. The article I read on it made me chuckle because the reporter mentioned all the Security designations the University has. Commonwealth Center for Security This and NSA Center of Excellence that. Clearly the reported was rubbing their noses in it and they deserved it.
The server contained names and social security numbers. As a former student I’ve been wondering if I should take some action. Unfortunately, GMU has reported that they don’t know the extent of the data on server. They don’t know if former students were purged!
They don’t believe the data was actually downloaded. Rather a hacker uploaded reconnaissance tools to that server after compromising it was used it as a base of operations to scan other GMU servers.
