I want my USC!

A man who was rejected by USC (University of Southern California) decided it was unfair and that he wanted to get even. He hacked into the school's computer system and stole personal information about other potential students from the database. The accessed records included applicants' names, addresses, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and Social Security numbers. This "brilliant" individual then proceeded to write about his crimes on his blog, and was eventually caught. In response to this incident, USC set up a toll-free line, and contacted the former applicants to urge them to carefully review their credit history.
