From Inside Higher Ed:
The personal information of approximately 13,000 school and university students was exposed as the result of a cyberattack, publisher Pearson confirmed July 31.
In a statement, the company said the exposed data was limited to first name, last name and, in some instances, date of birth and/or email address.
Pearson said the vulnerability has been found and fixed. “We have no evidence that this information has been misused, we have notified the affected customers as a precaution,” the statement said.
