ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Students at an Albuquerque college could be at risk of having their personal information compromised after the college reported that a thumb drive containing students’ information was missing.

KOAT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Km2tJC ) Central New Mexico Community College officials say the thumb drive with students’ birth dates and Social Security numbers was reported missing in July by someone from the school’s health center.

Students say they weren’t notified of the mishap until a few weeks ago. The college says the delay has been due to the school’s effort in tracking down students who may have been affected.

The students at risk are being offered a subscription to the identity protection company LifeLock.
