Hawaii Community College this week announced it’s the latest higher education institution to fall victim to a ransomware attack.
The two-year community college said it’s working with federal authorities to investigate the incident. The college temporarily shut down its network after being notified of the attack on June 13.
In a blog post dated June 19, ransomware group NOESCAPE claimed to have stolen 65GB of data from the institution. This claim has not been verified publicly by university officials.
No other University of Hawaii system campuses are thought to be affected.
