Police Probe Computer Hack of Calif. Charter School

By The Associated Press — August 25, 2015 1 min read

Authorities are investigating an email sent by a hacker to Contra Costa County officials in California notifying them of possible corruption at a Concord charter school.

The email claims association with Anonymous, a widely publicized network of Internet hackers and activists. The message said that Anonymous had gathered documents exposing the “manipulation and greed” surrounding Clayton Valley Charter High School. Police have confirmed that the hacker obtained the contents of at least one school staff member’s email account.

Clayton Valley school officials declined to comment.
