What is the issue?
Wallenpaupack Area School District suffered a ransomware attack which forced the school to shut down all 3,000 computers district-wide.
Attackers infected Wallenpaupack Area School District’s computer servers with ransomware. Once the servers went down, the computer screens displayed a message directing the victims to an email address to ask for payment instructions.
Steven Nalesnik, Director of Wallenpaupack Department of Information Services, told The News Eagle that their central servers that serve the whole district were affected in the attack.
