Park Rapids School Uses Backup Files After Ransomware Infected Servers
On February 25, 2019, Park Rapids Public Schools, located in Minnesota, became infected with an unknown ransomware variant.
According to school officials, the malicious software remained isolated to the servers and didn’t impact any other connected devices.
Approximately one week after the initial infection, the school’s IT staff is still working to restore the servers using backup files. Although it is taking some time to restore their systems, the cyber attack is having a minimal impact on daily operations, as a majority of the school’s programs are web-based.
