Hackers infiltrate second-largest US school district in growing trend
Hackers targeted the second-largest school district in the US with a cyber-attack over Labor Day weekend, officials at Los Angeles unified school district have confirmed.
The district characterized the cyber-attack as a “significant disruption to our system’s infrastructure” but officials said they did not expect major problems with teaching or such services as transportation and food. It said business operations might be delayed or modified.
Classes were scheduled to take place as usual on Tuesday morning, the district – which includes more than 600,000 students in kindergarten through 12th grade – said in a statement.
