I was just working at my job in IT and I got an email from a friend of mine with the subject 'I shared a file with you' and a bunch of adobe info in the body. I never opened the email, because it looked a bit weird. We are on a robotics team together so we send a lot of CAD files and such, but usually he'll title the message based on what the file is, for example 'lead screw lift system file backup' or 'current reserve parts inventory'
I decided to send him a text about it, and it turns out, there was a hack on our student emails.
Looking back about a day before, there was a message from our school helpdesk sent a day before I got the message from my friend mentioning a virus.
but that begs the question, who the hell would hack a bunch of student emails at a high school? Out of all the things they could have hacked, they chose the student emails?
