Louisiana school systems cyber attacked; emergency declared

July 24, 2019

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards has issued an emergency declaration after malware attacks against three school systems in the state have been detected.

Edwards didn’t provide details about the attacks affecting school systems in Sabine and Morehouse parishes and the City of Monroe. He says the declaration makes state resources available to help local governments respond to the cyberattacks and stop future data loss.

Edwards’ office says the declaration will remain in effect through Aug. 21, unless terminated earlier.
