AND THIS IS WHY WE CHANGED OUR SYSTEM! D:

Seriously, the school was using social security numbers as ID numbers for a looong time and only recently changed because they were afraid of this exact thing happening...Geez, guess it had to happen eventually. >< I'll have to let my older friends know about this~

Actually from what it sounds like, they got it from an old computer. So anyone from about 5 years ago that used that computer is at risk.

^ It's not people who accessed the computer, it was files that were stored on the computer that held sensitive documents.

Why has the same exact thing happened over and over again only a few months apart? Unless its all a scam from LifeLock.

In most of these cases (all in my opinion, but I don't have the proof) LifeLock security system has been offered to be paid by the school for 1 year free.
It's always computers from 5 years ago.
Its always from an "old computer".
And the school always makes light of the situation.
