Cyber attack on Dubai school network, parents warned

DUBAI: A British school in Dubai has warned parents about a cyber attack on its network last week, but has reassured them that necessary action has been taken to safeguard student and parent information.

 
 

 

Clive Pierrepont, Communications Consultant with the Taaleem education group which runs the Dubai British School, Jumeirah Park, told Gulf News, “We communicated the incident in a detailed statement to parents last week. The phishing attack was one of many that are unfortunately growing more prevalent in our ever connected, online lives. The attackers leveraged a tactic known as ‘password spraying’, a technique that exploits weak passwords and managed to compromise a number of staff email accounts.”
