Clarksville schools act after hacking report

 

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – School officials in Clarksville, Tenn., have shut down websites and email after a hacker group claimed to have stolen data.

Officials said they have asked police and the FBI for help in the case.

According to The Leaf-Chronicle (http://leafne.ws/LglnVV ), a group calling itself Spex Security said it had the email passwords and Social Security numbers of thousands of students and school system employees.

The group said Clarksville was targeted because of its “belligerence,” but there was no elaboration.

School system spokeswoman Elise Shelton says the system has not been contacted by the group. She urged individuals to monitor their financial accounts closely.

Glad to hear that the school is monitoring this very closely.  It is important that they do and they seem to want to stay on top of it for certain.

This is at least a little comfort for the current parents…not for the parents of students who have since gone on to college….lets hope that all damage is contained.
