Recompense for Incompetance

I received a letter last December from UCLA stating that "a restricted campus database containing personal information has been illegally accessed by a sophisticated computer hacker" (gotta love the assumption of "sophisticated there"). And that they regret to inform me my name is in the database. My question is, can I sue for damages? Is there already a class action lawsuit for damages against UCLA? What are my options? What traditionally happens to victims in these cases in terms of compensation?
