Hackers threaten to release stolen data in 9 days.
Medusa has added the Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) to its dark web site and is threatening to release the stolen data unless the school district pays a ransom.
MPS County confirmed the cyberattack in February and said the organization's IT systems had gone down. The hackers are now demanding a $1 million ransom for deleting the stolen data.
The Medusa ransomware gang began operating around the end of 2022. The Medusa ransomware is believed to be ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) and attacked at least 18 organizations in February alone.
