Vice Society ransomware claims attack on Cincinnati State college

The Vice Society ransomware operation has claimed responsibility for a cyberattack on Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, with the threat actors now leaking data allegedly stolen during the attack.

All documents on the Vice Society site have been made freely accessible to visitors and contain PII in the leaked files.

Vice Society has a long history of targeting educational institutions ranging from K-12 school districts to universities.

A new report by Microsoft recently observed Vice Society using multiple ransomware families in attacks against the education sector, including BlackCat, QuantumLocker, Zeppelin, and RedAlert.

In addition to these families, BleepingComputer has seen Vice Society deploying the HelloKitty ransomware in attacks as well.

A notable Vice Society victim from the education sector is the Los Angeles Unified, the second-largest school district in the United States.
