Some 32,000 people were alerted by UCLA officials yesterday about a cyberattack on a university computer server.  The attack was reportedly aimed at a Summer Sessions and International Education Office server that could provide details about students names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, health insurance identification and other information.  

The Westwood school believes the hacker did not obtain any sensitive information.  UCLA is offering one year of free ID protection services to those who were affected by the attack.
