I just found the below information and thought it was of high importance to share!
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Authorities are investigating after hackers accessed the personal data of 110,000 Clarksville-Montgomery County School system employees and students.
A 911 call came in around noon Sunday to Clarksville police about the hacking. Police contacted school officials, whose technology specialists determined a hacking group threatened to release a portion of the data.
A group calling itself Spex Security on Monday released the information on about 14,500 students and school system employees.
The information included students' names, birth dates, Social Security numbers and school and state ID numbers. Employee and schoolwide email passwords were also posted.
The group released the following statement with the information:
"Our primary suspects include the U.S government for torturous and deceptive acts on our own soil, the educational system for exuberantly being blown-over and belligerently not patching the holes in their system, and anybody else who partook a role in the murder of America."
The statement went on to say that Clarksville "was primarily targeted due to their belligerence." The statement did not clarify what that meant.
All school system websites were shut down. The school system contacted the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The school system said in a release "we are very concerned about this attack on our password protected information and will do everything within our power to resolve the issue. Meanwhile, it is recommended that individuals closely monitor their financial accounts. "
