Hacking a network of the Monroe University in New York, demanding a ransom of 170 bitcoins to recover data

According to CCN, hackers invaded the entire network at Monroe University in New York and demanded a ransom of 170 bitcoins (about $2 million) to restore the college's encrypted data. The school's official website is still offline. School spokesperson Jackie Ruegger said that although the school's mailbox has been attacked, the teaching activities have not stopped, and the payroll system has not been affected by hackers because it is handled by a third party. At the same time, Ruegger added, the school's IT team is working hard to restore the school's system.
