NY: Commack School District faces ransomware attack, superintendent says

Another Long Island school district may have fallen prey to a ransomware attack.

Superintendent Jordan Cox informed parents of the Commack School District in a message Wednesday.

“We have contacted federal, state and local authorities, including Homeland Security, and we are working closely with our Cyber Insurance carrier,” Cox wrote. “Ransomware such as this is a criminal act and an investigation is currently underway. There is no evidence at this time that any student or staff information has been accessed. If, after further investigation, it is determined that student or staff information has been accessed, the district will contact affected individuals.”
