BLOOMINGTON, Ind. Indiana University says it has spent more than $80,000 responding to a computer data breach that exposed personal information about 146,000 current and former students.

The university reported last month that information as names, addresses and Social Security numbers of those who attended any of IU's campuses from 2011 to 2014 was unsecured for more than 11 months because security protections weren't working correctly.

University spokesman Mark Land tells The Herald-Times (http://bit.ly/1kWrJ0T ) an investigation hasn't yet turned up any evidence that that anyone's identity information has been compromised or used.

Land says a call center number for questions about the data breach will remain active through at least this week. It has received about 950 calls so far, with roughly half coming on the first day.
