SchoolDude is a cloud-based service that monitors repair issues in school districts and other organizations. Schools relying on this service make it easy for employees, students, and maintenance workers to report and resolve repair issues throughout the school. This service recently suffered a significant data breach, and a huge number of user accounts were exposed.
We have no details about how the SchoolDude data breach occurred, but we do know that more than 3 million user accounts were compromised in the breach. All the details for the accounts could have been copied, and that means that everyone involved had their email and username for the account released to this attacker. That's a serious issue that should cause some concern for these SchoolDude account holders.
The breach occurred back in April 2023, and it persisted for a few days before it was identified as a risk, and all the account passwords were reset. For the few days that the breach occurred, a huge amount of data was captured, and that data could be used in harmful ways.
This SchoolDude has the potential to impact any of the 3 Million SchoolDude users that were exposed by this breach. Individual notices will not be going out to anyone impacted by this breach, so you will only know you were involved if your account gets reset and you need to make a new password.
We don't know how many SchoolDude files were impacted during this breach, but we know more than 3 million users were exposed to the breach. The huge volume of email accounts and SchoolDude passwords released is concerning because it is ideal for future credential-stuffing attacks.
The hackers with this long list of emails and passwords can attempt to use that same data to access email accounts, bank accounts, crypto wallets, and many other services for users that rely on the same password for multiple accounts. If you are on the SchoolDude system and you use the same password there for other accounts, you should start changing your passwords today to protect yourself.
