A ransomware attack disrupted the computer systems of Chambersburg Area School District in Pennsylvania. Despite this, the district decided to keep its schools open on Friday. The district released a statement confirming the attack and stating that they were working with specialists to investigate and restore functionality to their systems.

On Thursday, the school experienced a two-hour delay, and students were instructed to leave their electronic devices at home for the remainder of the week. The attack comes as many schools across the country have been targeted by ransomware gangs. The University of Michigan and Prince George’s County Public Schools are among those that have faced cyberattacks recently. This incident highlights the ongoing cybersecurity challenges faced by educational institutions.
