The College of Engineering’s computer network was disconnected from the Internet in response to the breach.Penn State University recently disconnected the computer network for the College of Engineering from the Internet in response to what it described as “two sophisticated cyberattacks conducted by so-called ‘advanced persistent threat’ actors.” “Contingency plans are in place to allow engineering faculty, staff and students to continue as much of their work as possible while significant steps are taken to upgrade affected computer hardware and fortify the network against future attacks,” the university said in a statement. “The outage is expected to last for several days, and the effects of the recovery will largely be limited to the College of Engineering.”
