Local schools report ‘Zoom-bombings,’ increase security measures

Cincinnati Enquirer |

Officials at Wyoming City Schools and Miami University say the schools are working with law enforcement to track down offenders.

FBI spokesperson Todd Lindgren said investigators have seen an increase in Zoom-bombing incidents since the spring when more schools and other organizations moved classes, meetings and events to online platforms.

The incidents at Wyoming City Schools and Miami University displayed nudity, profanity and discriminatory images, officials said. In the Wyoming case (occurring at the middle school), “The link to that meeting was very publicly shared… we will not be doing that again,” according to district spokeswoman Suzy Henke.
