The Watertown (New York) city school district is the latest to be hit with a cyberattack.

School district Superintendent Patricia LaBarr did not specify the type of attack that took place, but said it happened on July 27 and an outside security firm and law enforcement have been brought in to help.

“At this time, the District has taken remedial and corrective measures to secure the District’s critical computer networks and infrastructure. We are currently and will continue to work closely with local, state, and Federal agencies in the coming days as we work through this matter as quickly and thoroughly as possible,” LaBarr said on the district’s Facebook page.
