The laptop contained the names, address, dates of birth, telephone numbers, address and academic information on 18, and 2008 applicants. According to university officials, the information on the laptops is protected by two levels of user identification and passwords so the risk of identity theft is low. However, the university wants to make sure students are aware of the risks and what steps they can take to protect themselves. Toward this end, the university has created a web site - - as well as a phone line to help answer questions and provide information.
