Lewiston, NY (WBEN) Classes were canceled Thursday at Niagara University after a ransomware attack at the college.

The university issued this statement:

On Wednesday evening the university discovered that some of its email servers were encrypted by ransomware. University staff are currently working with a third party vendor to understand the nature and scope of the ransomware attack and to ensure that the servers become fully operational as soon as possible.

Law enforcement has been notified and we are cooperating with the investigation.

At this point we have no indication that any personal information has been compromised.
