Virginia Tech says the driver's license numbers of more than 16,000 job applicants may have been accessed when a computer server was hacked.
Virginia Tech says its Department of Human Resources was illegally accessed in August, exposing certain information from job applications.
That includes driver's license numbers for the thousands of people who shared the information in response to a question about professional licenses or certificates.
The server also contains standard employment information for all applicants, including employment history and prior convictions. No electronic resumes were compromised, and the university says the breach did not include Social Security, credit card or date of birth information.
Virginia Tech says it has notified applicants about the potential exposure of their driver's license numbers.
