Hackers compromise Harvard University's website

February 21, 2008

Officials say that, early in the morning on Feb. 17, Harvard University's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences website was broken into, and some of its database files were then made available on a peer-to-peer file sharing network on a server of the University's campus.

The hackers posted a zip file that contained a directory structure of the site, as well as the login user IDs and passwords for some of the system's administrators, according to various reports. Details are still sketchy at this time.

There was also a note attached to the file that rediculed Harvard's alleged lack of security on its servers.

It is believed that in the afternoon of Feb. 18, the compromised file was being distributed by at least eleven users, and was being downloaded by nine "leechers."

As late as yesterday, the website was still offline while computing officials at the graduate school investigated the hacking incident. Despite sensitive information being leaked, university officials maintained that no personal information about students or teachers was obtained in any significant way by the hackers.
