Officials at Butler University in Indianapolis say the school's computer system may have been breached.

A hacker may have stolen information related to about 163,000 students, faculty, staff, alumni, and school applicants.

An arrest in California tipped off the university about the breach.

School officials say they are taking steps to correct the issue and secure their data.
