Group claims to have hacked computers at ASU, UA

PHOENIX (AP) - A group of hackers claims to have breached dozens of university websites across the country including ones at Arizona State University and the University of Arizona.

UA officials said Thursday that someone recently gained unauthorized access to websites connected to two servers, but they don't believe any personal information was taken.

ASU officials say two university servers were affected, but there's no evidence of significant compromise of either server or sensitive information.

Both schools are investigating the cases.

The Arizona Republic (http://bit.ly/QJVsKq) says the group calling itself Team GhostShell claims it breached 120,000 university records and targeted the sites to protest changes in the education system.

ASU is the state's largest public university with more than 70,000 students and the UA is the second-largest with more than 40,000.
