Tennessee Students' IDs At Risk

Knoxville (WVLT) - A new report claims thousands of Tennessee K-12 students could be at risk for identity theft.

The Internet site SSN-BREACH.ORG says on August 28Th, about 17,000 K-12 student's personal information became available on the Internet.

This included student's full names, social security numbers, and school test scores.

The files were accidentally placed on-line during a temporary method to transfer files between computers.

The F.B.I. was notified and officials say the final set of files were erased Tuesday.
