Tertiary college Harare Institute of Technology (HIT) has apparently fallen victim to a ransomware attack.
Ransomware is an attack on a system that prevents access to a system preventing access by other locking a user out until a ransom is paid. The threat can also be to publish content if payment is not made.
The website has been taken down since.
It is not clear whether the ransomware attack is linked to the recent WannaCry attack which is still affecting computer systems across the world.
