UH faculty union reports apparent cyberattack

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

The University of Hawaii faculty union has notified authorities after its website was the subject of an apparent cyberattack this morning.

Kristeen Hanselman, associate executive director of the UH Professional Assembly, said no protected faculty information is believed to have been compromised.

The site is now operational again.

In an email to members today, UHPA said, “For the first time in 20 years, our web site is apparently under what is called a ‘denial of service attack’ whereby a nefarious source is overloading our web servers by attempting a forcible entry. We are investigating this situation and are contacting the proper authorities to take appropriate action.”
