Regis University in Denver has shut down its computer, phone and email systems because of a “malicious” cyberattack that it says probably came from outside the United States.
A carefully orchestrated plan netted email hackers $1.75 million from a Diocese of Cleveland parish.
Russian hackers infiltrated the email inboxes of Orthodox, Catholic, and other religious leaders connected to Ukraine amid conflict between Kyiv and Moscow over Ukraine’s political and religious independence.
In one sense the March 9-10 Vatican Hackathon isn’t really about “hacking”, meaning penetrating security systems, but in another it is about breaking down the firewalls that sometimes separate the Church from both youth and new technologies.
