Ransomware Stalls Online Learning In Baltimore School District
"All learning stopped in Baltimore County public schools this morning, teachers and students were locked out of their online courses when a ransomware attack halted all of the district's digital systems. Emily Sullivan and member Station W. Y P. R Reports Elena Lama Ke thought she'd seen all possible remote learning blunders. But then, as the kindergarten teacher was preparing for virtual parent teacher conference, she learned of the attacks, I think if it Have been any other year. My panic level probably would have been a lot higher. Honestly, I was like, Of course, there's a cyber attack. She and other teachers are shut out of their grating portals, email and even their phones. I don't know how we're going to navigate this.

Rubin says hackers have more opportunities to infiltrate them. Everybody is now using either zoom or Microsoft teams or some form of remote communication, and that includes students learning in school. There's been at least 30 ransomware attacks on schools this year. This one has left more than 115,000 Children who can't enter their classrooms due to the pandemic without a way to learn. Lama, Ke says she can't believe she's nostalgic for virtual learning. We get excited to see each other every day, and even though they're only seeing each other virtually when one student hasn't they asked, Why aren't they on the screen? Or they send virtual hugs to each other? Baltimore County School officials say they're working with the FBI, and they don't plan on paying ransom
