Educause, the keeper of the .edu TLD, is reporting that a server used to hold user profiles was breached and data was exfiltrated. For the most part, this will not affect our readers, unless you are in charge of a .edu domain, and do have an account with EDUCAUSE as a result. You should have received an e-mail from EDUCAUSE asking you to reset your password. Evidently EDUCAUSE uses informz.net to send these notices and we had readers suggesting that they are phishing emails. Regardless: Don't click on the link in the e-mail. Go to the EDUCAUSE site and change your password if you think you may be affected.
