Stephen F. Austin State University breach included counseling records

As reported by East Texas Radio:

Officials have determined that 8,600 counseling records and about 100 people’s government-issued identification numbers were stolen in a cyberattack at Stephen F. Austin State University last month. The cyber-attack hit SFA, causing their systems to go down. When officials discovered what happened, the university removed internet connections to contain the hack. Law enforcement, cybersecurity experts, and UT System colleagues worked together to help return the university to normal operations.

The attack occurred on June 12, and the university has still not fully recovered from it, as the “online outages” update of July 17 reports.

On July 16, Rhysida added the university to their leak site with a 7-day auction clock. They have posted some blurred proof of claims and are seeking 30 BTC (approximately $895,000.00).
