OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- The University of Nebraska at Omaha says a security scan has revealed unauthorized access to a server that contains personal information, including Social Security numbers.

Law enforcement and officials with the campus' information security office are investigating the breach, which was discovered in the past week.

Investigators have yet to determine whether any individuals' personal information was compromised.

Since the breach was discovered, the university says it has taken the server down to prevent further unauthorized access, hired a firm to assist with an investigation and plans to contact individuals who may have been affected if and when that's determined.

The university says anyone who sees irregular activity with their personal information should immediately contact the appropriate law enforcement agency.
