UC Berkeley Recovers Stolen Laptop

Campus police at the University of California, Berkeley have recovered a stolen laptop that contained information of more than 98,000 of the school's graduate students. The laptop's hard drive had been wiped clean of information and then sold on an Internet auction site, making it impossible to determine whether or not the sensitive information it had contained was ever accessed, the University said in a statement.

The laptop was stolen on March 11, after being left unattended in the school's Graduate Division, prompting U.C. Berkeley to begin sending letters and emails to the 98,369 graduate students and applicants whose names and personal information had been stored on the computer.
