Indiana University announces a possible data breach affecting thousands of students and recent graduates.

IU officials say the information at risk includes names, addresses and social security numbers. That information is for 146,000 students across seven campuses who attended from 2011 to 2014.

Officials say a change in security protections for the site inadvertently allowed it to be accessed without necessary authentication. Three webcrawlers, used to improve web searches, then accessed the data.

Officials say the site was immediately locked down. The university is in the process of notifying affected students.

The university has also set up a call center to handle questions. That number is 866-254-1484 and will no longer be operational by 8 A.M. on Friday, February 28th.

There's also a website with information on monitoring one's credit accounts here. To assist with credit monitoring, the university is notifying all three major credit-reporting agencies of the situation.
