Security Stop-Press : 14 UK Schools Hacked And Data Leaked Online 


Hackers from ‘Vice Society’ have stolen confidential pupil data from 14 UK schools and leaked the data online on the dark web. A variety of documents and data were stolen during the attacks in 2021 and 2022 including SEN information, child passport scans, staff pay scales and contract details. The ICO and Police are reported to be investigating and the targeted schools have taken post-breach measures which include working with cyber-security specialists, blocking remote access to all but a few staff with 2FA, and re-setting passwords.
