Snowflake data breach hits Los Angeles school board: thousands of students’ data stolen

In early June 2024, a threat actor using the alias Sp1d3r put a database up for sale on the dark web, claiming that it belonged to the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) and had been stolen from his Snowflake account.

The hacker asked for $150,000 for the archive, which contained student names, addresses, last names, demographics, financial data, grades, achievement scores, disability information, discipline records and parent information.
