(KSL News) -- BYU police now have a suspect in a cyber breach.

Someone used key-logging software to capture passwords and personal information of 600 students who used an open access computer lab. That data was then e-mailed to a Hotmail account.

Police say so far there's no indication the hacker used the information. They think the breach may have been an experiment, or a prank.
