Officials: Source of UBE Breach is Outside of U.S.

At least 100 East Carolina University students say they have lost money when their accounts were accessed in a security breach at a college book store.

University Book Exchange owner Don Edwards told The Daily Reflector of Greenville last week that the breach happened sometime in January. Edwards says it's the first time anything like this has happened in the store's more than 40-year history.

Students began reporting suspicious transactions in their bank accounts, most of them related to university-issued debit cards.

Investigators say they think the source of the breach is outside the U.S. Local police are taking reports so students can go to their banks to try to get their money back.
