Camosun affected by cybersecurity incident impacting BC Libraries Cooperative

Camosun College issued a statement after its library was affected by a cybersecurity incident targeting BC Libraries Cooperative. BC Libraries Cooperative–which hosts the Evergreen Integrated Library System used by Camosun—explained that their system was targeted by a hacker who demanded a ransom, threatening to release user data if the ransom was not paid. A Camosun release noted that the breach was minor and that it “did not pose a serious risk to privacy,” but warned that the emails accessed through the breach could be used to generate phishing or spam messages.
