An inadvertent leak of student information has caused a headache for Erie's medical school. The names and social security numbers for a number of students at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine wound up on the internet in April.

A LECOM spokesperson stressed that the security breach was not with any LECOM computer. According to LECOM the information came from their insurance carrier, Hubbard - Bert.

Affected students have been offered a year of credit monitoring.
