UCLA has set up a phone number and Web site for those affected by the security breach. The phone number is 877-533-8082, and the Web site is Identityalert.ucla.edu.
The University of California-Los Angeles alerts some 800,000 current and former students, applicants, faculty and staff that their personal information — names, addresses, Social Security numbers — were exposed when a hacker broke into a campus computer system.
The university says that only a small percentage of the records in the database were actually accessed. The case may be the largest computer breach ever at an American university.
