[ISN] UBC computer with sensitive data recovered
March 7, 2012
The University of B.C. is reviewing its security procedures after the
theft of a laptop containing personal information on thousands of
students and faculty members.
RCMP retrieved the computer last month, 10 days after it was stolen from
a vehicle in the Metrotown area.
According to information sworn to obtain a search warrant, the MacBook
Pro computer contained names, email addresses and student numbers for
50,000 people who attended UBC between 2007 and 2012.
During the time it was missing, someone changed the user name and
accessed the internet 15 times, the documents say. But the encrypted
information was never touched or in danger, according to UBC spokeswoman
