Howard University Reopens Wednesday After Ransomware Cyberattack

Howard University partially reopened Wednesday for in-person activity, one day after a ransomware cyberattack forced the school to cancel classes.

Howard’s Enterprise Technology Services, which became aware Friday of a potential cyberattack, had shut down all the university’s networks to investigate the matter.

“ETS and its partners have been working diligently to fully address this incident and restore operations as quickly as possible,” the school said Tuesday in a letter posted online.

The university, which did not mention those responsible for the attack or their demands, acknowledged it is working with both federal and local officials.

Undergraduate hybrid and online courses remain suspended for the time being, the university said in a statement Wednesday.
