Insecure Data Storage Problem at Indiana University

Big news this morning as IU has admitted that personal data of 146,000 current and former students, which was supposed to be stored on an encrypted server, was mistakenly stored on an insecure server (see, e.g., here).

One of the more interesting aspects of the story to me is the fact that you can't find anything about the data insecurity problem on IU's own website. Apparently, the "IU Newsroom" (see here) is only for reporting positive news about the university, its campuses, schools, and departments.
