David Brown, the chief deputy Hennepin County Attorney, said it’s “not a routine thing” to share such information with a university researcher. At the same time, he called it “important research,” adding that “the university, since the breach happened, has taken this very, very seriously.”

Brown confirmed that much of the stolen data was already public, but not all of it. “We just don’t know precisely how much,” he said.

“[We] were extraordinarily disappointed that, despite our best efforts to protect the security, that didn’t happen.”
