Protecting Your Privacy: Don’t Go To College

Last month I received a letter from UCLA telling me that they had leaked my personal information to a hacker.  I never went to UCLA.  I applied to school there 17 years ago (and was accepted, of course!).  Since I declined their offer to study, I guess they finally got their revenge by giving my information to a hacker nearly two decades later.

I don’t know which is worse, UCLA’s negligent information retention policies, or realizing that its been 17 years since I applied to go to school.
