Some of the top business schools in the U.S. have been hacked giving the hacker access to internal admissions records.

The hacker then assisted applicants in learning their their status before schedule.

“This is an abuse of the system we take very seriously,” says Steve Nelson, executive director of the MBA program at Harvard Business School. “Hacking into a system in this manner is unethical and also contrary to the behavior we expect of leaders we aspire to develop.”

According to a Miami Herald:

“An unidentified hacker tapped into Business Week’s online forum early Wednesday and posted instruction on how applicants could log onto the schools’ Web sites to check their admissions status.

Dozens of business schools, including those at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, Duke University, Carnegie Mellon and Dartmouth College, were affected by the breach, with their Web sites vulnerable for roughly nine hours before the problem was fixed.”
