The Penn State Schuylkill campus was revealed to be the third location affected by a computer security breach, university officials said Wednesday.
Last week, university spokeswoman Annemarie Mountz said about 30,000 individuals may have been affected by malicious software (malware) discovered on computers at two separate campuses.
The security breaches were found in the Eberly College of Science, with 7,758 records at risk, and the College of Health and Human Development, with 6,287 records at risk, Mountz said.
The third location, Penn State Schuylkill, had about 15,000 records breached, Mountz said.
Any computer found to have malware was immediately taken offline, Mountz said. There is no evidence any of the records were accessed.
The forensic investigation concluded once all letters were sent out notifying any individuals who may be at risk, Mountz said. The letters included information on how these individuals can keep their identities protected, she said.
The identities of the records affected have not been revealed.
