– Ransomware attacks remain the dominant source of breaches for the education sector
– Threat actors are selling VPN access to universities on the dark web
– The “Russian Market” on the dark web has listed over 82,000 logs mentioning the name in the past year – predominantly containing login credentials for subdomains of MIT
