A woman has filed a lawsuit against Gaston College alleging that the college waited six months to notify her after learning that her Social Security number and other personal information were accessed and posted online by a hacker. 

The class action lawsuit was filed Sept. 8 by Chasity Vernon of Lincolnton. 

It alleges that on Feb. 22, Gaston College became aware of suspicious activity within its computer systems and found that a hacker accessed sensitive files between Feb. 21 and Feb. 22, 2023. On Aug. 26, 2023, approximately six months after the college first learned of the breach, Gaston College began to notify students that their personal information had been accessed.
