ERIE, Pa. (AP) — Students at a northwestern Pennsylvania medical school are being urged to monitor their credit after their names and Social Security numbers were inadvertently posted online.


The Erie Times-News says the data breach impacted students at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine.


School spokesman Pierre Bellicini says the breach originated from Hubbard-Bert Inc., an Erie business that provides students with health insurance. The students’ data was indexed by Google’s search engine. Hubbard-Bert says it worked with Google to remove the students’ information.


Neither the school nor Hubbard-Bert would say how many students were affected.


The problem was discovered by a student last month.


Hubbard-Bert is offering the students one year of credit monitoring.
