The Brattleboro Reformer reports:
The Hinsdale school district is attempting to recover from a ransomware attack that occurred on Thursday morning.
“School district officials are working with Primex, its cyber insurance provider, and a professional cybersecurity response team to assess the situation,” states information release by SAU 29 Superintendent David Ryan.
Update December 12: Yesterday, Medusa threat actors added Hinsdale to their dark web leak site with a filetree as well as numerous screenshots showing internal documents and some personal information. A countdown clock gives the district 10 days to respond before data is leaked. Yesterday’s posting indicates that the threat actors are seeking $200,000 to remove the data or to buy it all.
