(KSL News) -- More than six hundred BYU students may be the victims of a computer hacker.

School officials detected a program in one of the computer labs on campus that recorded students' keystrokes.

BYU Office of Information Technology employees say it appears to be the work of an "inside culprit" who they believe is more interested in mischief than identity theft.

The hacker apparently sent the information to a Hotmail account.
