Jeffco Public Schools hit by the same threat actors that hit Clark County School District — and via the same way

“On October 31, some Jeffco staff members received alarming email messages from an external cybersecurity threat actor – an individual who has allegedly committed an illegal cybercrime against an institution or organization – indicating a cyber-attack.“

“Jeffco’s Information Technology team is working together with cybersecurity experts and law enforcement to determine the credibility of the attack and scope of the incident.“

“We, SingularityMD have included a few relevant parties directly and a selection of principals on cc. Your overall approach to cyber security is too relaxed.
