LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The University of Kentucky HealthCare is notifying thousands of donors and patients of a security breach by a third-party vendor that left information exposed.

Notices are going to about 163,000 donors who were previously patients, the university told news outlets.

Blackbaud, a vendor that UK HealthCare hired to store digital data, found that a cyberattack allowed unauthorized access to the information sometime between February and May, the school said.

UK was notified in July, and officials said on Tuesday that they will begin notifying those affected. No medical records, credit card information, bank information or Social Security numbers were exposed, officials said.
