Unnamed Canadian university domain up for sale on dark web

April 13, 2020

Intelligence firm KELA has reported that an unnamed Canadian university’s network may be at risk for a cyberattack. Earlier this month, a threat actor on the dark web put administrative access to the domain of an unnamed Canadian university up for sale. It is not clear at this point how access was obtained. KELA has notified a contact at the University of Toronto and asked it to pass on the threat to other institutions, reports the Financial Post. “We hear about this sort of thing in general, all the time,” said Ryerson University CIO Brian Lesser in an email. “But, I can’t say I’ve heard about the access to a specific university system being sold.” Financial Post (National)
