NL: Secondary school in Lochem pays ransom after cyber attack criminals

NOS reports:

Staring College, with offices in Lochem and Borculo, has paid ransom to cyber criminals who locked files. School board member Carlien Krist-Spit tells Omroep Gelderland that payment has been made to prevent education from being given for a longer period of time.

The school noted the attack on Tuesday. A lot of data suddenly turned out to be encrypted and the files were no longer accessible. “The continuity of education and exams were endangered,” said Krist-Spit.
