Cyberattack forces BC3 to cancel classes, close for 2 days

Butler County Community College announced Sunday night that it would cancel classes Monday and Tuesday due to a ransomware attack.

In addition to canceling remote and online credit classes, it will close its main campus and additional locations for two days as it restores databases, hard drives, servers and other devices affected by the ransomware attack.

The college has also canceled its noncredit courses.

A regional cybersecurity firm is assisting the college in its ongoing restoration of information, according the college.

In-person fall credit courses had previously been scheduled to be held in a remote format this week. The college planned to switch to the remote format Monday through Saturday, the final week of fall semester classes, as a mitigation measure with regard to COVID-19.
