Over the weekend, the Chester County School District’s servers were hit with ransomware, a type of malware that may block users from accessing their own system, according to a statement from Superintendent Angela Bain.
No data was taken or breached, the statement says.
“We are fortunate to have technology staff who have backups in place,” a district statement reads.
“We are following protocol and have notified the S.C. Department of Education. Principals have been notified and are taking precautions. We have a specialist on site to assist us today. We ask for your patience as we work to recover.”
