Hinsdale Schools, N.H., Investigating Ransomware Attack

“The Hinsdale School District continues to investigate a cyber attack that took out its computing network earlier this month. The school district is one of many increasingly affected by security breaches nationwide.“

“Hinsdale officials have released few details on the ransomware attack that was discovered Dec. 7, but interim Superintendent David Ryan has said student and staff laptops, classroom computers and computers used by Hinsdale administrators were all examined as part of the investigation. “

“Ryan said that by Dec. 11, the district, which has 532 students, had regained some of its capabilities. On Thursday, Ryan said in an email to The Sentinel that "the incident is not impacting day to day operations. In order to protect the integrity of the investigation we are not able to provide further details at this time." He did not say whether the district paid a ransom to regain its network. “
