Cyber-attack directed against the Kentucky Department of Education

School Safety Shield Blog

A portal in the Kentucky DOE‘s website used by parents to check their student‘s grades was hit with a denial-of-service attack.  This attack crashed the site, preventing parents in 50 school districts from accessing the website.

The DOE worked with AT&T to get the portal re-opened, and shored it up to prevent such attacks from causing it to crash in the future.
