Ca: College of the Desert victimized once again by ransomware; most online services currently down

Jonathan Horwitz reports:

The College of the Desert has fallen victim to a second successful malware attack against its online network in as many years. Currently, most of the college’s online services are offline, its website is not available and at least some employees are lacking access to their email accounts, COD public information officer Nicholas Robles confirmed Tuesday morning.

In August 2020, the school experienced a malware attack that resulted in the college’s website being taken offline and its email system being disrupted.  It is not known to DataBreaches whether any data from that incident was ever leaked.  In 2014, however, the college had two email-involved breaches in June 2014. The first impacted employees; the second affected students.
