Hello all, It came to our attention yesterday that an online hacking zine posted an article about both the MIT hacking event and the EDUCAUSE breach that occurred earlier this year. The information was then shared via Twitter. As we disclosed in our February announcement, the hackers did access EDUCAUSE data in the earlier incident. This recently discovered article includes a dump of EDUCAUSE data. The data set includes information about the .edu domains, such as pre-breach account passwords. Those passwords were deactivated at the time of the breach. The domain contact information has always been publicly available via the .edu Whois directory. There has not been another breach nor is any of the data different than what we had known in February. If you have any questions, please contact me at mmilliron@educause.edu.
