Kazimieras Simonavicius University (hereinafter – the University) informs that a cyber attack incident may have occurred at the university on December 8, 2023 (hereinafter referred to as the Incident). The incident is suspected to have occurred through the “Moodle” system, possibly compromising the confidentiality of personal data of the University’s students. The categories of personal data that may have been compromised include student names, surnames, email addresses, and data on student evaluations.
Currently, the University is investigating the circumstances of the Incident. Security measures have been taken, and every effort is being made to determine the causes of the Incident, assess its consequences, and prevent the occurrence of similar cyber incidents in the future. Presently, there are no known negative consequences or risks to the rights and freedoms of students. There is no evidence that the possibly leaked personal data of students has been made public or that their confidentiality has been otherwise violated. However, the possibility of such incidents in the future is not ruled out. The University informed the State Data Protection Inspectorate and the National Cyber Security Center about the cyber incident.
Due to the potential compromise of personal data and the risk of its dissemination, we strongly recommend that University students change their login credentials (password) for the “Moodle” system.
