Pharmacy hacking hotline open

KU officials have reported to the FBI a computer hacking on Friday, April 2, into electronic pharmacy records in the Student Health Services at Watkins Memorial Health Center.

How much, if any, of the information may have been copied, altered or otherwise tampered with is under investigation.

Until Jan. 26, 2004, the affected computer server was used to support pharmacy operations. Files on the server contained records on prescriptions filled at the on-campus pharmacy from July 1994 to January 2004 for KU students, faculty and staff.

Individuals who believe they filled prescriptions at Watkins Memorial Health Center between July 1994 and January 2004 may contact the university by calling a toll-free assistance number, (877) 529-4295, or, locally, 864-9147, or by e-mailing The phone number will be staffed from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
