TX: Pearland ISD says hackers in recent computer breach may contact, harass parents

Yvette Orozco reports:

Pearland ISD is alerting parents and others associated with the district that parties responsible for a recent breach of its computer system may try to contact them.

In a video statement released on the district’s website, Superintendent Larry Berger said that an ongoing investigation shows no evidence so far that any sensitive information had been accessed by anyone outside of the district.

However, he said the district is alerting the community that “unauthorized actors” who caused the problem may try to contact residents regarding the matter.

Media coverage does not indicate what group might be responsible for the attack that was first detected on November 8, nor if any ransom demand was received.
