There are few de­tails avail­able about an ap­par­ent com­puter hack at Cor­ner Brook Re­gional High School ear­lier this week.

Upon look­ing into re­ports there had been some sort of se­cu­rity com­pro­mise in­volv­ing a com­puter sys­tem at the school Wed­nes­day, prin­ci­pal Vaughn Gran­ter did con­firm Thurs­day for the The Western Star that there was an in­ci­dent.

Gran­ter said he did not know any de­tails of the al­leged breach, let alone have any per­mis­sion from the New­found­land and Labrador English School District to make any com­ment about what had hap­pened.

Gran­ter did say the school district was in­ves­ti­gat­ing it and said he had no knowl­edge of whether or not the po­lice were in­volved in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

The New­found­land and Labrador English School District did not make any­one avail­able for an in­ter­view Thurs­day and, in an emailed state­ment, sim­ply said it is aware of and is in­ves­ti­gat­ing an in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy in­ci­dent at the high school in Cor­ner Brook.

The Royal New­found­land Con­stab­u­lary never re­turned a re­quest for in­for­ma­tion about any po­lice in­volve­ment.
