Manchester Schools’ Internet Disruptions Caused By Outside Attack

  • Internet issues within the Manchester Township Schools that forced the district to shut down in-person classes and have teachers teach from home have been determined to be an attack on the schools’ internet by outside groups.
  • The traffic was intercepted by the district’s firewall, so no personal information was compromised.
  • The district’s system was hit multiple times and caused the district’s network to shut down.
  • To resolve the issue the district had to subscribe to an outside service to stop it from happening.
