"The privacy of our users' information is our top priority and we have extensive policies in place to protect that data.

Items exposed included students' SAT scores, personal address, date of birth, physical evaluations, post-injury reports, performance reviews from specific teams for particular players, and athletic financial aid agreements.

The researcher said they originally warned Front Rush of the issue on Sunday. When the company did not respond or take action, the researcher contacted Motherboard on Tuesday. Front Rush has since closed off the server. Subscribe to our cybersecurity podcast, CYBER . Tagged:
