Regarding the Publication of Excel files Containing Personal Information


Dec 20, 2023

Due to an inquiry from a person not affiliated with the university, it has been discovered that by processing an Excel file that was posted on the University's website in a certain way, it allows access to data that was temporarily saved in the past using the external link function, which is not displayed currently in the Excel file. The data included the names of students who were enrolled in the 2018 academic year, their affiliations, year, student ID numbers, campus email addresses, and other personal information. We deeply apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused to our students and graduates.

After the situation was discovered on December 4, 2023, the file in question was immediately deleted. At present, no secondary damage such as unauthorized use of personal information has been confirmed.

We are committed to investigating the cause of this incident and preventing its recurrence.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this situation, please contact us at the following address.
