PHOENIX -- A hacker may have gained access to the personal information of more than 9,000 former University of Arizona law students, the school said Wednesday.

The Tucson school said the attack happened on July 29. The hacker gained access to old class rosters and applicants lists that may have compromised the names and Social Security numbers of 9,080 former students.

After the university discovered the breach, the affected server was taken offline. A letter was sent to those whose information may have been compromised.

"We're working to help make sure people are not harmed by this incident," said Marc L. Miller, dean of the James E. Rogers College of Law, in a press release. "We deeply regret the breach occurred and we've taken extensive measures to prevent this from happening again."

The school purchased one year's worth of credit monitoring that will allow affected students to keep an eye on their credit at no charge.

The university also advised those affected to change their passwords.
