And are they ever going to learn? Ransomware Attack Causes School ‘District-Wide Shutdown’.
At least the Las Cruces Public Schools didn’t cancel classes because the computer network was shut down.
Swift action does not save the day
The district activated the crisis response team and is working to restore critical services. It is unclear at this point how long the systems will be down.
The IT department discovered early Tuesday morning (7 a.m.) that some servers were compromised and reacted quickly by shutting down the entire computer network of the district.
Communication with schools in the district is done via phones and handheld radio stations.
However will they survive without the Internet?
