Massive Data Breach at University of Maryland

Governments, corporations, educational institutions, all of them completely incompetent when it comes to basic data security.  This is going to be a headache for a lot of people.  From Malwarebytes:
The University of Maryland (UMD) said it was the victim of a recent cyberattack, according to their statement released Wednesday. In the letter, UMD President Wallace D. Loh said he was informed of the breach yesterday evening by Brian Voss, the Vice President of Information Technology at the university.

“A specific database of records maintained by our IT Division was breached yesterday. That database contained 309,079 records of faculty, staff, students and affiliated personnel,” Dr. Loh said. “The records included name, Social Security number, date of birth, and University identification number.”
