Update: One or more Paterson students were allegedly responsible for district data breach

Jayed Rahman provides an update to a breach previously covered on DataBreaches.net:

One or more students were allegedly responsible for the massive data breach that struck the district late last year, according to sources briefed on a preliminary investigation conducted by a firm contracted by the district.

Superintendent Eileen Shafer’s administration won’t make the findings public, stating it is “attorney-client privileged material.” The district hired the law firm of Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellott to investigate the data breach, which claimed more than 23,000 passwords. Investigation followed reporting in the Paterson Times about the data breach.
