Progress reported after Watertown CSD hit by malware

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - The head of the Watertown city school district said Wednesday she anticipates ‘no negative impact’ from computer malware which struck the district’s computers last weekend.

Since then, the district’s computers have largely been off-limits, as security experts worked to find out how much damage, if any, the software virus had done.

School superintendent Patricia LaBarr said Wednesday that the district is using back-ups of its data, and expects to restore computer service over the next couple of days.

She said work on the computers continued Wednesday.
