US Campbell County Schools Targeted in Latest Ransomware Attack

“Campbell County Schools in Greater Cincinnati, Kentucky, have fallen victim to Medusa’s ransomware attack which has put thousands of people at risk.“

“According to Medusa Group, the attack happened on the 6th of December in the afternoon. Following the publishing of the proof and the ransom of $600,000 for deletion of data, the Campbell County Schools have been given two weeks to pay the extortion to avoid their data being published on the internet. “

“The stolen data varies in type but it seems to indicate that the hackers have access to more or less everything in the school’s cloud storage. This includes financial statements, pictures of students and faculty, personally identifiable information (PII) of students, employees, and more. Among the shared pictures of proof, students’ assessments are also shared in the form of an excel sheet. “
