In the email sent to all students on May 8, 2009:
UC Berkeley computer administrators determined on April 21, 2009 that restricted electronic databases had been illegally accessed by hackers, and that the data thefts began on October 9, 2008, and continued until April 6, 2009. All of the exposed databases were immediately removed from service to make sure that they would be completely protected from any future attacks.
That's six months that my private data was being accessed without your knowledge? Have you guys even heard of security? How many people had access to this database?

I remember not too long ago a similar incident, I think the UC applications database, that was unnoticed for 6-12 months and then we got a butt-ton of emails. Obnoxious.
