Monmouth leaked data on students

"Monmouth University accidentally posted the names and Social Security numbers of 677 students on the Internet for 4 1/2 months before a student discovered the error earlier this month, campus officials said yesterday.

The private university in West Long Branch sent letters to students yesterday advising them to check their credit reports for signs of fraud or identity theft. So far, no students have reported a problem."
