U of I: Past Student Took Social Security Numbers
Police Capt. Roy Acree said Thursday that 22-year-old Daniel Beckwitt downloaded information that included the Social Security numbers of students who lived in the Hendrick House residence hall during a break-in during the 2011-12 school year.
Detective James Carter told The News-Gazette in Champaign (http://bit.ly/12fJTvv ) that police don't believe the numbers were used for anything and no new charges are expected.
Beckwitt was sentenced this month to 24 months of probation after he pleaded guilty to computer fraud for tampering with campus email accounts and installing devices on keyboards that log users' key strokes.
Residents whose data was accessed are being notified.
