Samantha Morrill

Technology Services at Morehead State University is continuing to work through restoration of systems after a recent cyberattack. The update comes from Morehead State’s Office of the President.

Officials said at present, there is no evidence any data on students or employees was compromised by the attack. However, technology services is continuing to keep the campus network down a little longer to assure all has been restored, as well as assuring all parts of it are screened, checked and possibly rebuilt. Officials also said campus wi-fi is in the process of restoration and could be complete within a few days.

All campus offices are open and available via telephone and email. A number of them have technology restored, while work is being done with others. In the coming days or weeks, all campus-managed devices will be reimaged. The Office of Information Technology recommends any campus employee who wants to retain files on their workstation should migrate files to OneDrive.

In the meantime, printing services are available in the ADUC 1st floor copy center for those who bring their materials on a thumb drive.
