Incident: New Zealand university student services website suffers security failure

Canterbury University in New Zealand has shut down its online registration service after a student discovered that anybody with a student number could obtain access to any other student's information, including personal information about disabilities, financial aid, etc. The university does not think the glitch was misused, but have taken the site down in the meantime.
