CMSS Urge Private Data Protection
Clarksville Montgomery County School officials say employees and students should take steps to protect identity and credit information that may have been compromised when hackers broke into private school data.
The hacker group Spex Security leaked more than fourteen thousand personal records to the media and various websites earlier this week. The group says the release is preliminary and claims they have private information on over one hundred and ten thousand identities. They say the leak is punishment for what they term the education system’s failure to patch holes in their system. School Communications Officer Elise Shelton says information on protecting credit is available through the Federal Trade Commission and any of the three credit bureaus.
