It seems I missed an annunciation that another northward Carolina community college got hit with ransomware (or is this the mysterious listing I saw briefly on a dedicated leak site but it was gone before i could line the nominate and details?). in any event, on august 24, Piedmont Community College (PCC) in north Carolina reported that they had discovered what they described as a “cyber-incident.” The college took critical systems such as VPN access and other services offline by the end of that day. On October 1, the college issued an update stating that they were continuing to work on repairing systems impacted by what they now labeled a ransomware attack. They make no mention, however, of any ransom demand, the type of ransomware, and whether they have a usable backup to restore from. Their update notes some help they were receiving: We are grateful to legislative allocation of funds for Rural Broadband access Funds that will enable us to purchase additional hardware and services as part of our overall restoration. It is now 2 months since the attack. What manage they know? Was any student or employee data accessed? Was any exfiltrated? What are they doing about protecting students and employees if there is a chance they are at risk? are systems fully restored? DataBreaches.net has reached out to PCC to require for more information and will update this stake if a response is received.
