Ransomware attack shuts down Lewis & Clark Community College
Russell Kinsaul reports:
Lewis and Clark Community College in Godfrey closed all their campuses this week and cancelled all extra-curricular activities, including sports. The move was made after the director of information technology noticed suspicious activity last Tuesday and shut down the school’s computer network on Wednesday.
According to college president, Ken Trzaska, hackers got into the network but never gained control.
