BC3 Brockway location closed for two days for ransom attack


Butler, PA – Butler County Community College has canceled remote and online credit classes and will close its main campus and additional locations Nov. 29 and Nov. 30 as it restores databases, hard drives, servers and other devices affected by a ransomware attack.

This includes the BC3 location at Brockway.

The college has also canceled noncredit courses and will not provide services Nov. 29 and Nov. 30 on its main campus or at its additional locations.

A regional cybersecurity firm is assisting the college in its ongoing restoration of information.

In-person fall credit courses had previously been scheduled to be held in a remote format this week.

The college Oct. 3 changed all in-person credit courses to a remote format Nov. 29 through Dec. 4, the final week of fall semester classes, as a mitigation measure with regard to COVID-19.
