EL PASO- All of EPISD students' social security numbers could have been compromised in an online hack.


That announced on a hacker's blog Monday. Host Bustorz, an online hack group, says they hacked into the school district's database and has the names, ethnicities, student ID numbers and social security numbers of nearly 7,000 students.

We spoke to a representative from identity finder software out of New York who says he first told the district just two hours ago. He says this hack seem legitimate. An EPISD spokesperson says they're aware of the problem and will be sending out more information as soon as possible.
