Samantha Morrill

Morehead State University officials report a limited number of computers on campus were affected by a cyber-attack. President Jay Morgan said internet, websites, and servers related to the University will be kept down to limit any potential damage. MSU’s Information Technology staff have been working diligently with vendors to resolve the issue.

Some specific computers have been isolated and no personal data has been compromised at this point.

Students may find that email is accessible on smart phones and some off-campus computers. Officials are encouraging students to leave on-campus computers disconnected from all networks as staff systematically work through technical issues.

MSU instructors are asked to provide students with assignments that to not depend on technology on campus.

The office of the president will provide more information as it becomes available.
