RANSOM — Howard University, one of the nation’s leading historically black universities and the alma mater of Vice President Kamala Harris, is still trying to work its way out of a crippling ransomware attack. University officials have not released information about the ransom demands, but the attack has shut down the Wi-fi and Internet systems used by faculty and students to conduct classes.
