Virginia Tech says the driver's license numbers of more than 16,000 job applicants may have been accessed when a computer server was hacked.
Officials said the server in its Department of Human Resources was illegally accessed on Aug. 28, exposing information from job applications.
Virginia Tech says 16,642 people provided their driver's license numbers in response to a question regarding professional licenses or certificates.
The breach didn't compromise Social Security, credit card or date of birth of information. Applicants have been notified about the potential exposure of their driver's license numbers.
