Patrick Cloonan reports:

Officials in the Purchase Line School District are looking to avoid a repeat of a recent case of theft by deception that targeted the district’s emails and approximately 100 of its vendors.


Their move is the latest in a series of steps taken since Jan. 31 when, as described by Superintendent Joseph A. Bradley, “our district was the victim of a email spoofing attack by an individual pretending to be a school district employee.”

No arrest has been reported in connection with the incident.

Read more on Indiana Gazette, although it’s a frustratingly vague report. What information was stolen by deception? Was this a W-2 phishing attack?  The district was not immediately available to respond to an inquiry emailed to it by this site.
