IL: School District computer system; most data recovered, superintendent says

Kennedy Nolen reports:

Foreign hackers targeted the Mount Zion schools computer system in an attack that resulted in 19 days’ worth of grades being wiped out across the district.

Data was not removed from the system, but the hackers encrypted several servers, making them unusable, Superintendent Travis Roundcount said in an emailed response to questions from the Herald & Review about the incident, which was noted on the district’s website as happening Feb. 4.
