Press Release

University of Houston Math Prof Posts 259 SSNs Online
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July, 23 2008 UPDATED: January, 01 1900

HOUSTON, Texas. University of Houston Math professor, Marjorie Marks, accidentally posted 259 students' social security numbers and grades on a UH Math web server in October, 2005. The Liberty Coalition notified the university of the breach in late May, 2008, but search engine caches did not clear until July, 2008. All affected students appear to have taken Math 1310 in Fall 2005.

The University of Houston did not reveal whether they have notified (or are even capable of notifying) affected students, but failed to detect the confidential student information for more than 2 1/2 years. By placing this information online, the University of Houston has put these students at severe risk of identity theft and other forms of fraud.

The information on this page was compiled by the Liberty Coalition, which bears sole responsibility for its accuracy.
