Hopewell Area School District says network disruption was caused by ransomware attack

“The Hopewell Area School District was the target of a “sophisticated ransomware attack.” How it happened remains under investigation, but the key concern in any cyberattack is data. “

“In a statement, Superintendent Dr. Jeff Beltz said the district has been working with outside specialists to investigate the cause of the attack and restore systems. “

““There has been substantial progress made since last week on the network, and specialists will continue to support and lead district efforts. While we continue to restore network functionality and our investigation remains ongoing, we can now confirm this incident stemmed from a sophisticated ransomware attack by unknown criminal actors,” Beltz said. “
