Online class associated with Mississauga school hacked by unknown individual
The virtual classroom of a Mississauga school was hacked this week.
On two separate occasions, an unknown individual entered an online classroom associated with Chris Hadfield Public School.
Initial rumours suggested some of the students may have been exposed to explicit images. However, a spokesperson for the Peel District School Board (PDSB) has refuted this.
“Our investigation so far has not found any explicit images or videos,” the spokesperson said in an email to insauga.com.
The PDSB’s IT department is currently investigating the matter, and the class has been moved to another secure virtual learning environment in the interim.
