Canadian University Websites Breached, Records Exposed

The New York Times has a story about hackers who have broken into servers at 53 universities and have published online certain student records and other data.

The universities concerned are principally in the United States but include some in other countries. Two Canadian universities have had their servers hacked: the University of British Columbia and McMaster University.

I’ve followed up the hyperlinks provided and find that data from both these universities is openly available online at the time of writing.
