About 14,500 users of Internet services at the Duke University Health System should change their passwords, officials said on Monday. Duke said hackers were able to penetrate security, obtaining information on user passwords and social security numbers, but were unable to access financial and other confidential records. University IT officials discovered the breach over the Memorial Day weekend after unusual activity was detected on the school's server logs. Duke began the process of notifying employees via email on Friday.
