SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The University of California, San Francisco, is warning nearly 10,000 people that their personal information may have been compromised after desktop computers were stolen in January.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday (https://bit.ly/1eVdNgd ) that there’s no evidence that anyone has tried to access or use the personal information contained on the machines.

The unencrypted computers were taken from the university’s Family Medical Center. Officials say they contained personal and health information, which may have included individuals’ names, dates of birth, mailing addresses, medical record numbers, health insurance ID numbers, and driver’s license numbers.

Additionally, the Social Security numbers of 125 individuals were on the computers.

The university has notified police, the state health department, the Attorney General and federal authorities.

Credit monitoring is available to those people whose Social Security numbers were on the computers.
