Tennessee Wesleyan University systems recovering after Friday ransomware attack

Shane Duncan reports:

Tennessee Wesleyan University was the target of a cyber attack that held certain files for ransom last week.

The university is currently investigating the attack that was made on the campus network early Friday morning along with local officials, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI), and TWU’s insurance company’s cyberattack team.

According to a press release by TWU, all of the university’s networks had been shut down since just before 10 a.m. as campus officials became aware of the attack.

There’s no indication in the report who the attackers are or what the ransom demand was.
