TSTC Server Data
On January 30, 2014, a Network Security analyst in the Office of Information Technology at Texas State Technical College System discovered employee personally identifying information was located on a server that was remotely accessed by unauthorized parties. The server was contained and taken down. The files contained the information about TSTC employees as of November 2013. Initial investigation indicates the files were on the server from November 4, 2013 to January 30, 2014.
We deeply regret this situation and are taking steps to protect TSTC employees who may be at risk. The College has immediately blocked access to the files and is conducting an extensive investigation. Forensic analysis to date does not indicate that any of the data on the compromised machine was actually stolen.
