FBI Investigating Cyberattack At Rutgers University

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) - FBI agents are investigating a cyberattack that crippled Internet service at Rutgers University in New Jersey.

University officials say the attack began on Friday.

Service was slow and sometimes was not available.

A university spokesman says the system is now working on campus. But technicians are still working to restore it for off-campus users.

Spokesman E.J. Miranda says there is no evidence that any confidential information was compromised.

Meanwhile, published reports say a cyberattack at Fairleigh Dickinson University were quickly resolved over the weekend.
