School districts come under disturbing attacks from foreign hackers


School districts have come under attack from hackers, including ISIS-related, in a few different ways.  They seem vulnerable because of particular service providers and particular platforms that they use.

Here’s a report from northern New Jersey.

There were also disturbing attacks, some of them threatening, in Iowa and in the Flathead area of Montana (Post story).
  
I didn’t encounter any of this when working as a substitute teacher in northern Virginia 2004-2007, but times have changed.
