EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan State University has warned more than 40,000 Wharton Center patrons that a hacker broke into a computer server involved in credit card processing for the performing arts venue.

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

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

The letter was sent to Wharton visitors who used their credit cards as far back as September 2003.

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