Washington State University warns students of third-party data breach

According to a release from the university, officials got a notification from a third-party service provider that “personally identifiable information” from current and incoming students and staff may have been exposed in a data breach. The university said the breach could have been caused by an ongoing cybersecurity incident related to MOVEit Transfer, a popular filesharing program.

WSU said it does not use the MOVEit software, but some of their third-party providers does, including the National Student Clearinghouse and the Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association. Multiple businesses and federal agencies have fallen victim to these cyber attacks over the past few weeks.
