Salem State University(SSU) found one of the college's computer servers is infected by a malware. The university sent notification to 25,000 current and former employees whose information stored on the affected server.
The security breach affects people who have received a paycheck from the university - from full-time staff to students who were employed on campus, according to The Salem News report.
Tom Torello, vice president of marketing and communications at Salem Stated "we don’t know if anyone’s information has been used in any type of illegal way, so we don’t know if anyone’s information is out there."
The University has offered one year of ID protection services through Experian for those affected employees.
