Sweetwater School District System Outage Due to Cyber Attack
(TNS) — The Sweetwater Union High School District told staff in a letter Friday that its massive systems outage first discovered at the start of last week had been caused by a cybersecurity incident.
The South County district of about 36,000 middle and high school students first discovered problems with its Microsoft systems on Sunday, Feb. 12, according to the teachers union.
The day after the problems were discovered, the district's Internet and student information system were shut down "to ensure that no other systems could be affected," the union said in an email to staff.
