I received a voice mail AND this email this morning...
The School System has been alerted that hackers have accessed personal
data of students and employees. A 911 call was made just before noon on
Sunday to the Clarksville Police Department
that 110,000 records had been hacked into. The Police Department
contacted CMCSS, which deployed its technology specialists to begin
investigating what might have been accessed. It has been determined that
a group of hackers has made a direct threat with plans to release a
portion of the data. All school system websites have been shut down.
CMCSS is seeking outside expertise in additional web security, and have
requested law enforcement assistance. The Clarksville Police Department,
the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of
Investigation have all been contacted. Naturally, we are very concerned
about this attack on our password protected information and will do
everything within our power to resolve the issue. Meanwhile, it is
recommended that individuals closely monitor their financial accounts. …
Now, I'm not too sure what exactly they may have accessed, when it comes to me and my families information...but it's kinda freaking me out!
Has anything like this happened to you before? What should I keep an eye out for?
Any and ALL comment are appreciated!
