Security incident at Beaverton School District may have compromised student passwords

“The Beaverton School District was hit by a cybersecurity incident that may have compromised student passwords, the district announced in a message posted to its website and sent to parents Tuesday night. Student passwords to email accounts, Google documents, Canvas and other platforms all may have been compromised.“

“The district said it discovered the security incident earlier in the evening and planned to reset the system at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. Parents and students were warned to download any needed Google documents before 8 p.m. because the system reset would make accounts unavailable after that. The district said Tuesday night that students would be able to reset their passwords and get back into their accounts at school on Wednesday. “

“In a letter to families and staff Wednesday, the district said that it believes it knows "the origin and nature of the incident," but Beaverton police has asked them not to report the details because it's an active investigation. The letter also said that the district's IT teams are working on reinstating student accounts and devices but didn't give a time frame for when that would happen. “
