School officials said the information appeared as a name and long string of numbers — social security number, student ID number and date of birth — on a file indexed by Google. Students practicing advanced searching techniques in a March 13 lab class found the file and reported it to the university's information technology department immediately. The file was a back-up created when the school installed a new server in July 2011 and was accidentally indexed by the search engine. Since then, the file has been taken down by Google and removed from the cache, according to the UT release. Students and employees affected will receive a letter or may contact the IT department to find out if they were among the nearly 30,000 people whose information was on the list. Currently, UT says there is no evidence of the data being used maliciously but has offered to pay for fraud alert services for anyone who would like extra assurances.
