Several Stephen F. Austin State University computer accounts were compromised and used maliciously to send emails with offensive content, and some grades were changed for students in the College of Sciences and Mathematics. SFA officials are aware of this situation and have taken action to stop the unauthorized use of these accounts.

SFA takes the security of its systems very seriously and will continue to investigate this incident until it is resolved.

The content of the unauthorized messages sent is in absolute contradiction to the values of SFA, and we apologize to those who may have received it.

Individuals with information that could help identify the person or person(s) responsible for this incident should contact the University Police Department at 936-468-2608 or
