Quoting the district’s description of itself, the attackers commented: Lake Dallas Independent School District has a vibrant, growing student population, an excellent array of programs, a strong curriculum, and a progressive, innovative atmosphere. Seems like everything is on the best level but its not. Gygabytes of students’ and their staff personal information is not a thing to worry about. A few hundreds of SSNs and array of passport information will be available here on Monday. This is the result of being non-progressive in cybersecurity. “
