NJ School District Suffers Weeklong Attack

The Cherry Hill Public School District appears to be a victim of a Ryuk ransomware infection, a particularly vicious form of malware. The District has been without fully functioning computer systems for a week.

"Files within the computer system were reported to be encrypted and screens displayed the word, 'Ryuk,' which is associated with a criminal organization that demands ransomware payments to unlock affected computer systems."

The Ryuk ransomware strain is believed to be controlled by attackers based in Russia.

A huge number of school attacks have been reported this year, highlighting the fact that schools are a target of focus for attackers.

INFIMA and its Partners proudly serve our schools, keeping the school doors open and protecting their students' data.
