Russian Crime Ring Data Breach
NYU IT Technology Security Services is aware of the NY Times Article that was published on August 6th, 2014 regarding the large number of records supposedly breached by a Russian cybercrime group. We have not yet received any indication that NYU was affected, and the company that put out the story has not been forthcoming with specific details to back up the report. That being said, NYU takes all potential breaches seriously, thus we will continue to monitor the situation and will take appropriate responsive action, including notifying any affected members of the NYU Community should we discover their accounts were affected.
