The University of Maryland on Friday morning detailed the credit monitoring it is offering anyone affected by a computer security attack on the school that compromised hundreds of thousands of personal records.

The security breach early Tuesday morning exposed the names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth and university identification numbers for 309,079 people affiliated with U-Md. on its College Park and Shady Grove campuses. The attack targeted a secure database that holds information from as far back as 1998.
