Interesting story about Saint Francis Xavier University (St. F.X.) back in Nova Scotia being the target of a cryptocurrency hack. Reading between the lines it doesn’t sound like Moodle was specifically targeted, but interesting that the CBC made a point of naming Moodle.

This kind of thing is probably far more common than you’d think, just not as often reported.
