Cincinnati State College was added to the leak sites of ransomware groups over the Thanksgiving holiday, continuing a trend of educational institutions being targeted by hackers. The Vice Society ransomware group added the school to its list of victims.

Last week, the school said it is still investigating a cybersecurity incident that occurred in early November and that it is making “progress towards restoring many systems and services.”


Classes have been able to continue online and at all the school’s physical campuses. Email services are now operational but IT systems are taking longer to be restored.

Access to campus internet and classroom computers have been restored, however. The school did not provide a timeline for when services will be fully returned to normal and did not respond to requests for comment.
