Second college at Penn State hit by cyber attack

Another college at Pennsylvania State University has been affected by a cyberattack, university officials announced late Friday afternoon.

Several systems in Penn State’s College of Liberal Arts has been the target of two cyberattacks, but it doesn’t appear any “personally identifiable information or research data” was compromised, the university said in a press release.

However, some usernames and passwords were compromised and will have to be changed, the university said.
The university does not know who committed the attacks, officials said.

The attacks were discovered as a result of enhanced security the university has been using since a cyber attack on its College of Engineering was discovered in May.

Investigators found that in one case, attackers gained access to the college network. The “earliest sign of intrusion” to the liberal arts college system was on May 4, the school said.
