ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — User names and passwords may have been compromised in a ransomware attack on the Rockford Public Schools, officials said Tuesday.
A forensic firm which was hired by the District to investigate the attack said no personal information was accessed.
School leaders say progress is being made on restoring systems, such as Internet and phones; teacher access to Google Classroom should be restored this week.
Wi-Fi access should also be restored, administrators said.
E-mail, phones, and public address systems were also hobbled in the attack.
