Another Cyberattack Disrupts Internet Service at Rutgers

Another cyberattack has interrupted Internet service at Rutgers University. 

University officials say the attack began on Monday morning.

Spokesman E.J. Miranda said the school was working to resolve the situation. He also confirmed the "denial of service" was caused by an outside source.

This is at least the fifth attack on Rutgers University's network in the last year. Similar attacks in May and August made the network inaccessible.

After the August attack, the university hired three cybersecurity firms to help protect its computer networks.

At the time, school officials said the firms would be tasked with testing the university's network for vulnerabilities and other work that officials said they could not discuss for security reasons.
