Missing laptop returned: Student info not accessed

July 22 2008

A missing Indiana State University computer has been returned and student information contained on the computer was not accessed while it was missing, the university reported today (July 22).

The laptop computer was mailed anonymously to the professor, along with personal items that were reported stolen along with the computer while an Indiana State professor and his family were traveling in southern Indiana on July 12.

The professor received the computer Friday. A subsequent analysis by the university's Office of Information Technology determined no information contained on the laptop was accessed.

As a courtesy, the university is continuing with plans to notify more than 2,500 students whose names, addresses, student identification numbers and grades were on the password-protected computer.
