A Final Farewell
May 24, 2017

Recently the internet at Jefferson-Morgan has been on the fritz. The internet has halted the progress of most classes, especially those online for three painful days. Students and teachers were both extremely upset during this period of time, one Jefferson student named Jonathan Perez was in complete shock about the quality of the internet because “It found a way to somehow get even worse,” said Perez.

Due to the condition of the problem being so severe that the internet was not even usable, people have begun thinking that there was some foul play at work. One student named Jordan Hess said, “It seems as if someone is messing with the internet.” Many students and teachers have been lead to believe that certain type of virus called ransomware was uploaded to the internet provider for multiple school districts such as Waynesburg and Carmichaels. This virus allegedly got into the internet providers systems and threatened to delete everything unless funds were sent its way. Other students are also believing that the internet was a sign that the Distributed Denial of Service attacks (D.D.o.S.) that plagued schools in 2014 were returning.  

Thankfully, during the third day, the problem was solved and the internet has slowly been returning to normal. The public is likely to never know what the problem exactly was but I personally believe some that there was some kind of problem but it wasn’t as serious as ransomware or a series of D.D o. S. attacks. I presume the problem was that some piece of important machinery such as a router was malfunctioning resulting in severe internet problems for multiple school districts until the problem was identified and solved.
