Oregon College Struck with Hack Attack

The Central Oregon Community College's website has been hit by what school officials say are overseas hackers, prompting technicians to replace it with a temporary version, KTVZ.com reported.

COCC spokesman Ron Paradis said the only inclination to the public that the website had been compromised was its  intermittent service.

The hacker, who “appears to be from a foreign country,“ reached the only part of the college's online system that is not behind a firewall, Paradis said. But thanks to the ability to trace website visitors, Paradis said, the college is certain the intruder did not access anything valuable.

“We have no evidence any sensitive or confidential information has been compromised,“ he said. “Basically, the only thing they could reach would be a staff roster and email addresses, and they didn't. We could tell where they were and for how long.“
