SC Magazine Data Breach Blog picked up this story in the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Virginia Commonwealth University is notifying 17,214 current and former students of a security breach that may have exposed their Social Security numbers.

It used to be common practice for universities to use Social Security numbers as Student ID's.  Much of that data is still floating around on hard drives and storage devices throughout campus.  In this case it's going to cost VCU a year's worth of identity-theft insurance for all of those exposed records.
