registering for classes on the associated student website last night, a hacker was bragging on twitter, the hacker then dumped 3.8 gigabits of student information on this site, where we found a column labeled password and user names. additionally the privacy and security company identifiers say they saw what looked like social numbers. >> a server was hack. it's just a -- social security numbers may grab headlines, but there's also other information in there that the university needs to be worried about. >> san jose state spokeswoman says what appeared to be social security numbers were in fact student id members. >> at best, at most, some student id numbers may have been
disclosed, but the only thing you can do with that is check your grades, pay your bills, there's not a lot you can do with a student id number once you leave campus. >> reporter: hacking into a university database is a crime and the university will refer the case to federal authorities once their investigation is complete. in the meantime time, the privacy officer says students should be observant. >> right now the greatest risk for the average individual affected by this breach is being the victim of a phishing scam. so you ought to watch out for e-mails that come through asking you to interin information. >> >> we asked the san jose state work -- because no social security numbers were divulge, they really don't have to contact students. >> santa clara is crying foul t city is planning to appeal the

transparency in that budget process. the governor however has his eye on november and his proposed tax position is -- he's taking very careful steps to gain voter approval of the proposal. look for nbc bay area's political analyst larry gersten. >> the general rule, we know the voters just don't like to increase taxes, regardless of the type, regardless of the length of time. the voters haven't passed a tax increase believe it or not since 2004. and that was a minor one at that. as a matter of fact, taxes have decreased, if you consider the motor vehicle fees that arnold schwarzenegger slashed to the tune of about $5 billon annually. given this very, very touchy
environment, brown is leaving no stone unturned to gain public support. >> he really wants this done, so he has had to do a lot of maneuvering and he's actually had to give quite a bit to win over the public too. >> first he persuaded the legislature to pursue funding for welfare programs. nobody likes welfare programs. he's reduced funding by more than a billion dollars. nobody likes paying workers more right now when things are bad. and you can expect the governor to cajole the legislators into pension reform, another thing the voters are angry about. so combined, these moves are designed to show the public that he's being lean, he's being mean with taxpayer dollars. and a new legislation will place a new law on the ballot ahead of
statutes. that means the voter also see his proposal before they see two other proposed tax measures. >> so he's giving himself top billing s that really going to make a difference to voters or losing so many school days going to be more prevalent in voters minds when they go into the booth? >> on the one hand, he's cut, cut and cut. on the other hand he's made it clear that if a temporary tax measure doesn't pass in november, the shortage of revenue will force k-12 to shut down three weeks earlier this year and three the next. brown is doing everything possible to earn the public's trust. >> and parents across california are watching what happens to that initiative very, very closely. we here are the results, 52%
said yes, they would vote for it. 39% said no. the highest court in the country is set to decide the fate of president obama's health care law. we have the new nbc poll, how americans would react to the supreme court's ruling on thursday. 37% said they would be pleased if the high court finds the law unconstitutional. 22% say they would be disappointed with that outcome. if the justices rule the law constitutional, 65% said they would be pleased, while only 22% said they would be disappointed. and debby downgraded, but she doesn't appear to be letting up. and a popular travel booking
it's an interesting debate. some say they're being unfairly targeted. if you access orbitz.com, if you use a mac, you'll get a higher price than pc users. stephan stephanie? >> when calculating how much you'll save on orbitz.com, you might want to consider what computer you're using. and for those of you who have macs, may end up paying more. >> yes, i'm a mac user, i like mac. >> steve jobs lived two blocks from me. >> and randy, an -- when mac
users search for hotel, pricier options pop-up first, that's all thanks to company research. >> i think i'll change to dell. >> mac users were 40% more likely to book four and five-star hotels so when customers use a mac to search for a hotel, they initially get more costly prices than people who use pc. the company says it's all about tayloring the consumer's experience. >> i know that all companies do sort of user target to some extent. but i don't -- this one just makes me a little bit uncomfortable. i just feel like i'm not getting value for the time i spend on the side. >> orbitz says this has all been blown out of proportion and
blames the -- the complete article clarified that all orbitz users are shown the same results, just in different orders, depending on whether the user is on a mac or pc. but it's too late for some mac users who say orbitz went overboard. >> i actually can't use orbitz more than the others, but i might change that. >> now orbitz says it's mac/pc strategy still in its early stages and may extend the deals to car rentals. >> for the first time we're hearing from jerry sandusky's son who in his own words claims he was molested by his father. >> nbc has obtained an exclusive
audiotape of matt sandusky, it's a 29 minute reporting of a police interview conducted earlier this month, detailing the molestation he suffered at the hands of his father. matt sandusky says he was molested fawn from age 8 to 16 and like many other victims he met sandusky. he said he was touched inappropriately, but doesn't remember any penetration or oral sex with his father. and after years of denying the abuse, even to a grand jury, matt sandusky says he now wants the family to know the truth. >> so that they can really have closure and see what the truth actually is and just to right the wrong, honestly of going to the grand jury and lying. >> jerry sandusky is awaiting sentencing on over 40 counts of
child sex abuse. new documents released today in the case of george zimmerman, the police report describes the night the neighborhood watch captain killed trayvon martin. he thought trayvon was suspicious and called the authorities, and he tried to follow the teenager. the report also showed zimmerman passed a live detector test when asked whether he was confronted by the teen and whether he was in fear for his life. in both cases he said yes. debby is causing widespread flooding, evacuations, rescues and freeway close you ares, as much as two feet of rain could dump-in some areas. it's a tiny guess chur, but you and kofi annan will take it.

police force by more than 60%. >> we had to drop our patrol workforce and there has been an increase in crime. >> on vallejo streets where police disappeared, prostitutes popped up. >> we would see ten, 15 a night. >> reporter: so new neighborhood watch groups formed, prior to the bankruptcy there were 15, now there's more than 400. >> we need to come together as a community and take care of ourselves. >> in downtown vallejo many shops sit empty and residents are paying a 1 cent sales tax hike. >>er the court approved bankruptcy plan defers interest on the city's debt for five years, but also requirings even more concessions from labor unions. city officials were supposed to notify police and firefighters last december and they plan too renegotiate their contracts. but they didn't put it in
writing. as a result those contracts have been extended for another year. so now vallejo will have to dip into its new rainy day fund just to balance the books. >> that's unfortunate, that's not something any of us want to see, coming out of bankruptcy, it should be structurally ball lantzed. still ahead here at 6:00, is stress taking its toll, details on a new link between stress and alzheimer's. >> oreo cookies caught in the cross fire. and today was day one of a warming trend around the bay area, in fact still a pretty nice evening outside, as we see still a few 70s right now around san jose and sunnyvale, seeing a lot more into the 80s, talk about more of a warming trend and the rest of your forecast when we come back.
