L.A. College Pays Hacker’s Ransom to Unlock IT Systems

“A cyberattack on Los Angeles Valley College over the holidays locked down a variety of the school’s IT systems just as students were returning for the new year. The major disruption prompted the L.A. Community College District to pay a Bitcoin ransom last week that amounted to approximately $28,000 in order to meet a hacker’s demands.”
