        “Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) urged students and staff to stop using their school-issued Windows computers and only use Chromebooks and Google accounts following a ransomware attack that hit the district’s network last Wednesday.

        “The ransomware attack forced BCPS to shut down most of its network due to the large number of systems impacted during the incident.

        “The Baltimore County school district is in charge of all public schools in Baltimore County, Maryland, and it is the 25th largest U.S. school system.”

        I can hear the ESL class right now: “One, two, three, four, out the Window you must go!”

        Sorry.  :/
