Yet another school district hit by ransomware, this time in Illinois
Adding to a mounting tally of schools that have fallen victim to ransomware this year, a school district in northern Illinois announced that some of its systems too have been infected. Sycamore Community School District 427, a preK-12 district with seven schools that lies 60 miles west of Chicago, noted on its website on Tuesday that some of its "internal technology servers" have been infected by ransomware, though the note's author, Superintendent Kathy Countryman, did not supply the type of ransomware used, the ransom amount or whether the district intends to pay.
