RENO, Nev. (AP) — School officials say alumni and donors from the University of Nevada, Reno may have had their information stolen in a data breach that occurred in May.
The school was told of the breach on July 16 by Blackbaud, a third-party fundraising technology provider.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reported that Blackbaud says no social security numbers, credit card information or banking information was taken.
University spokeswoman Kerri Garcia says about 200,000 people may have had their contact information, addresses and giving history compromised.
The university informed alumni and donors of the breach on Aug. 31. Blackbaud says they paid a ransom to the hackers to ensure that a copy of the data was destroyed.
