Spartanburg School District 1 hit with ransomware attack

Dustin Wyatt reports:

Officials of a Spartanburg County school district didn’t think it was necessary to notify parents when a cyber-attack shut down computer systems for three days last week.


The ransomware attack hit District 1 schools sometime Wednesday, Feb. 26, shutting off internet connectivity and network access. District spokeswoman Sandra Williams said the IT department immediately began working with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division and the state’s National Guard Cyber Security Battalion to determine how deep the hack went.
