Hackers attack the OU Health Sciences Center

Tuesday, 13 January 2004, 12:49 AM EST

Federal and state law enforcement agencies are investigating a computer-hacking incident of 25 to 30 Microsoft Windows and Unix computers and servers at the OU Health Sciences Center. The attack occurred around Dec. 15, according to Information Technology officials.

The attack caused hundreds of computer users, who access the HSC computer network from home, to not have access to departmental files for days. The attack also caused several IT technicians to work overtime during the holiday break, said Becky Trepagnier, director of Information Technology at HSC.

Technicians made a huge effort to assist computer users whose network connections had failed during the break. Technicians rebuilt servers and are currently conducting an extensive analysis of the attack on the network.
