(KSL News) A computer hacker got access to records at Dixie State College. Now administrators are telling alumni and current employees.

The school's technical staff says someone went online last month and, through a search engine, found confidential files. Those files had birthdates, addresses and Social Security numbers of about 11,000 former and current employees and Dixie State alumni who attended between 1986 and 2005.

Dixie Administrators say they have no evidence the hacker has used the information.

In order to further assist, update and provide as much information as possible, Dixie State College has created a Web site dedicated to this issue at www.dixie.edu/idprotect.

DSC has also established a toll-free telephone hotline accessible at 1-866-295-3033. Individuals may also email questions and concerns to idprotect@dixie.edu.
