EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan State University has warned more

But so far, there has been no indication that credit card data was 

"There's no definitive evidence that credit card data was accessed or 
copied," Kent Love, Wharton Center spokesman, told the Lansing State

The letter was sent to Wharton visitors who used their credit cards as

Love said the intrusion, which is under investigation, was discovered 
April 26.
