Washington County school district looks into possible ransomware attack
EAST MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - It’s still unclear whether personal student information was stolen during a system hack.
The superintendent of the Washington Central Unified Union School District says in a letter Wednesday that its information systems were compromised.
Interim Superintendent Jen Miller-Arsenault sent out a letter to families saying the district’s systems have been compromised as a result of a suspected, but unconfirmed ransomware attack.
Federal, state and local law enforcement have been notified.
Independent investigators and third-party experts are determining the nature and extent of the attack.
Currently, they are able to continue as normal with a few disruptions.
The investigation is still in the early stages, so it is still unclear if any information has been accessed.
