Well, this is a bit different. Did Fauquier County Public Schools in Virginia contribute to its own attack by noting employees could use free online SMS MFA websites for folks who don’t want to use a personal phone number for 2FA/MFA?
It’s something to think about.

Update of October 20: Fauquier County Public Schools notified the Maine Attorney General’s Office that 13,919 people were affected by a breach that occurred on September 9, 2023. The notification to parents and guardians begins: “Although we have no evidence that any unauthorized party removed any personal information from FCPS Systems, we wanted to alert you to this matter.” So who are the almost 14k people?
Looking at LockBit’s leak for the district, the folder names do not look like they would be a lot of student information. There is an archive, however, that appears to be online but never seems to download fully, so DataBreaches is not yet sure what files are really in it.
