Oct 2 - Hackers Release Stolen Data After LA School District Refuses to Pay Ransom
 

 

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Hackers have released data stolen in a cyberattack against the Los Angeles Unified School District, Superintendent Alberto Carvalho confirmed Sunday.

"Unfortunately, as expected, data was recently released by a criminal organization," Carvalho said in a statement. "In partnership with law enforcement, our experts are analyzing the full extent of this data release."

The data was released Saturday -- two days before a deadline previously given by the hackers -- after Carvalho's stated refusal to pay ransom to an international hacking syndicate.

The group claiming responsibility for the cyberattack had previously set a Monday deadline for the district pay a ransom to the organization.

In a dark web post detected and reprinted by Brett Callow of the cybersecurity firm Emsisoft, the hacking syndicate Vice Society listed the LAUSD as one of "our partners," and stated, "The papers will be published by London time on October 4, 2022 at 12:00 a.m."


The post did not give any indication about what information had been obtained or what would be published.

Carvalho previously acknowledged that the district received a ransom demand from the group responsible for the Labor Day weekend hack -- which he declined to name.

"We can acknowledge ... that there has been communication from this actor (hacker) and we have been responsive without engaging in any type of negotiations," he told reporters. "With that said, we can acknowledge at this point ... that a financial demand has been made by this entity. We have not responded to that demand."

He did not provide specifics about the demand.

Carvalho told the Los Angeles Times on Friday that the district would not pay the ransom demand or negotiate with the hackers.

"What I can tell you is that the demand -- any demand -- would be absurd," he told the Times. "But this level of demand was, quite frankly, insulting. And we're not about to enter into negotiations with that type of entity."

A hotline will be available starting Monday at 6:00 a.m.

"This hotline will a*sist those from our school communities who may have questions or need additional support," Carvalho said.

The telephone number for the incident response hotline is (855) 926-1129. Hours of operation will be 6:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding major U.S. holidays.

Everybody should ignore these hackers 100 percent of the time.

Tell everybody to change their passwords, Take your L, and move on.

It ain't the password, its the data. If I get in your house, took all your sh*t, and then charge you for it's return, you changing the locks does nothing. Especially if the way I got in had nothing to do with the door.

In a lot of cases, it's cheaper to pay up. The FBI and CISA say to not pay but when your entire hospital is at a standstill and the cost to rebuild your infrastructure is in the 100s of thousands, not to mention time and data loss....you coming right out the pocket.

Yup! This is exactly why medical facilities are targeted so much, not to mention they have all patients sensitive data in their charts. Easy full profiles there. What ppl dont realize is when hackers take your full profile chances are they will sit on it and use it for other illicit activity so it goes beyond that change password bs someone is mentioning above

The number I remember hearing at OWASP last month was like 300 million in 2020.


 Average payment in 2021 was 570,000, with the average demand a 5.3 mill.



paid 40 mill last year.


If they will pay 40 mill, imagine what it is really worth

This is true, the weekend before I was going in the hospital for a scheduled surgery, the hospital system got hacked. Talk about going back to the Stone Age. They had to go down to dry erase boards and TONS of paper to even function. Since my surgery was considered elective, I was surprised I still had it because they were canceling them left and right. They were down for months dealing with the rebuild.

Carvahalo is trash

He tried to keep it under wraps when our system was down since Thursday and didnt make a statement till Sunday night.

If they got SSN then it’s our info. We don’t ask for ssn of our students

There’s also a lot of legal info on welligent and students can be exposed for services and incidents that aren’t supposed to be shared with outside agencies.

And they know we’re sitting on 50 bill of Covid funds

Who should ignore them? The companies? It's against the law.
