 CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - The Southern Environmental Law Center says its computer system has been hacked, compromising what it calls highly confidential information.
     The Charlottesville-based organization says in a statement that it has reported the "major Internet security breach" to the FBI. The center said it believes the breach was an intentional effort to undermine its environmental protection mission in a region that includes Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama.
     The center did not elaborate on the nature of the confidential information and urged anyone who receives an email about an "SELC security failure" to delete it immediately without opening it or clicking on any of the links.
     Spokeswoman Kathleen Sullivan says the center is still investigating the breach.
