Officials at East Tennessee State University continue to investigate a data breach involving employees. Two unidentified employees were duped into clicking a link in a phishing scam sent to their email accounts. It’s believed that the two were part of a group of employees that received the scam and that the emails were not sent university-wide. ETSU has been investigating and working to identify which staff members were affected and what information may have been exposed over the past few weeks. Those unauthorized users could have accessed the private information of 7,700 people and could include personal information like full names and social security numbers. Former employees or retirees have also been informed.
