“All Cned sites and My Class at Home platforms have been the targets of cyber attacks again since last night,” the National Center for Distance Learning (Cned) said on its Twitter account Thursday morning.
Contacted by franceinfo, the ministry of National Education confirms that “This Thursday morning, the Cned site and the ‘My class at home’ service are encountering difficulties. They have been the subject, in recent hours, of new attacks.”
The distance learning center “is also collateral victim of the attacks which currently affect other educational sites via the access provider Renater “, is suing the ministry with franceinfo, which adds that National Information Systems Security Agency (Anssi) “works in conjunction with the affected educational services”. “There is therefore almost no access to MCALM [Ma classe à la maison] for the moment, however, the ENTs are working again “, specifies this same source.
These new disruptions occur less than 24 hours after a return to normal for the Cned platforms. MOn Wednesday noon, the Ministry of National Education had indicated that “All of the Cned’s distance education services had returned to normal. A few slowdowns in connections were reported without blocking access to the services”.
The cyber section of the Paris prosecutor’s office opened an investigation into these cyberattacks on Wednesday, to “fraudulent access to an automated processing system” and “hinders the operation of such a system”. The investigation was entrusted to the Central Office for the Fight against Crime Related to Information and Communication Technologies (OCLCTIC).
