VERNON — The town of Vernon has shut down internet and email services due to access for “unauthorized access to the computer network”.
The threat was discovered over the weekend. Among those who were impacted includes Vernon Public Schools. Joseph Macary, the superintendent, sent an e-mail to parents.
“Based on our initial findings we do not believe that any personal data or information was compromised. We are still working on with our partners and experts to determine what happened,” says Lt. William Meier, from the Vernon PD.
Vernon Police says there has been minimal impact and at this time it is unknown what may have caused this. The town has IT experts looking into the matter and are taking the issue very seriously.
