Risk Management Notifications
June 26, 2020
Recently, an incident occurred in which an unauthorized individual attempted to exploit a vulnerability in the Aeries software used by the District to store information. All potentially affected student families have been notified by CVUSD Risk Management with a detailed letter mailed to their home addresses. If you have not already received a letter from Risk Management, this means your data was not affected.
The incident that occurred would have allowed an unauthorized individual access to student and parent information that potentially included parent and/or student name, home address, phone number, email address and hashed password—a form of rendering the actual password indecipherable to third parties—for the Aeries System. Because the information stored in the Aeries database is limited to the above, there was no access to any sensitive information such as Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, financial account information, or other information directly impacting your credit rating. Again, that information is not stored in the Aeries database.
Regardless of whether your data was potentially compromised, we are asking that all parents/guardians practice the technology industry standard and change their password on their Aeries accounts every 120 days. Chino Valley Unified School District is committed to protecting the confidentiality and security of our students’ information and that of their parents.
