Personal data stolen from a St. Paul student loan organization in March has been recovered.
Two safes containing the information stolen from Education Credit Management Corp. (ECMC) were recovered in a Minneapolis trash bin, the Star Tribune reported.
Police recovered the safes on March 22 and were storing them in an evidence room, the Associated Press said. They were unaware the safes contained the stolen data.
The safe was full of 650 CDs that contained names, addresses, social security numbers, and other personal information of 3.3 million student loan borrowers, the Star Tribune reported.
It appears as if the data on the CDs was not compromised, the Associated Press.
