Lumberton ISD cyberattacked, personal information stolen

Dannie Oliveaux reports:

Global hackers that took aim at a foreign government have also claimed responsibility for a data breach at Lumberton ISD, according to an email sent to an East Texas newspaper. Wanting to warn the local school district’s stakeholders about the compromised intel, staff from the out-of-town daily reached out to The Examiner with the news on June 26.


According to Edwards, the email from Rhysida contained attachments showing W-9 files, Social Security cards, Texas Driver licenses, passports, a substitute teacher’s application form, spread sheets that appear to contain Social Security numbers of students or employees, a vendor form with a Social Security number and tax identification number, and addresses from Lumberton ISD.
