St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Missouri teachers’ Social Security numbers at risk on state agency’s website

St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Missouri teachers’ Social Security numbers at risk on state agency’s website. “The Social Security numbers of school teachers, administrators and counselors across Missouri were vulnerable to public exposure due to flaws on a website maintained by the state’s Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The Post-Dispatch discovered the vulnerability in a web application that allowed the public to search teacher certifications and credentials. The department removed the affected pages from its website Tuesday after being notified of the problem by the Post-Dispatch.”
