Kim Passoth reports:
Has private financial information been exposed in the cyberattack on the Clark County School District? That is the big question teachers and parents still want an answer to. Some report since hackers breached CCSD network, there have been attempts to withdraw money from their accounts and some say they have had money taken. Can these activities be tied to the cyberattack on CCSD? FOX5 took that question to CCSD.
“Is the district aware of any parent/ student/ staff account (financial information) accessed due to the hack?” That is the question FOX5 asked CCSD in a series of emails with CCSD’s Communications Department. That question was not answered. CCSD did tell FOX5 financial information was not taken from school web stores accounts. What accounts, if any, do hackers have access to?
“Since the hack was posted publicly, I’ve had my card compromised twice through my bank,” shared Sandra Rogers, a CCSD teacher. Rogers can’t know for sure the unauthorized attempts to take money from her account are due to the CCSD cybersecurity breach, but she did get an email from the district saying some of her information had been exposed. Parents and staff say they were told they would get letters if their private information was compromised.
