Carleton University’s Computer System Was Hacked, Hackers Demand For Bitcoin

Another hacking event happened today, Carleton University— one of prestigious universities in Canada, was hacked and shockingly, the hackers demand for Bitcoin.

I have noticed that lots of hackers nowadays use Bitcoin for ransom. Okay, I understand, in the bad side, people are taking advantage of the freedom that Bitcoin offers. But also, in the good side, people receive a transparent transaction and freedom from any type of intervention.

Check out more information below:

Carleton University‘s IT network was taken over Tuesday, by hackers using ransomeware to demand payment via bitcoin.

The Ottawa university first posted a notice late Tuesday morning advising students of the disruption, calling it “an attempt by an external group or individual to hack into the IT network.”

Affected users were advised to refrain from accessing the network, including connecting to Wi-Fi or using a printer. They were also advised to shut down their computers.

Network users were instructed to ignore requests for payment, and report them to staff.

Ransomeware blocks legitimate users from a system and demands payment in exchange for a software code or key to regain access.
