For the second time in a month, The University of Maryland says someone hacked into its computer network and obtained personal information.

Chief Information Officer Ann Wylie revealed the breach Thursday in a letter to administrators and department chairs, according to The Associated Press.

The university learned of the intrusion Saturday and worked with federal and campus law enforcement agencies to limit the potential harm. One senior university official had personal information captured, the AP reported, but Wylie did not say whether other people had their data stolen.

Wylie says the incident isn’t related to a Feb. 18 data breach involving records of about 288,000 people.

It seems every time you listen to the news or read something there is breach of security. Either the security is very poor in stores, colleges etc. or the reporting is getting better. It is extremely scary between the government listening to phone calls & hackers getting information off credit cards we are not safe.
