Quick note: Two more school districts hit by cyberattacks: Skokie-Morton Grove, Decatur ISD

Brett Callow of Emsisoft notes that LockBit has added Skokie-Morton Grove School District 69 in Illinois to their leak site. No proof of claim was posted and no description of any data allegedly stolen was provided.

Elsewhere, The Messenger reports that Decatur ISD in Texas suspects a cybersecurity attack is responsible for the internet and phone outage experienced earlier this week:

DISD’s main server went down at 5:15 a.m. Tuesday. Since then, district officials have met with various experts to look into the cause of the issue. On Friday, DISD Director of Communications Robyn Jones released a statement indicating the investigation has pointed to a “cybersecurity incident.”

The district reports that it has not received any ransom demands.
