College of the Desert has restored internet service at each of its campuses 10 days after a malware attack took down many of the college’s online services.
With internet service back online, students can again access Wi-Fi throughout COD facilities. Staff can also use a web-based system to assist students with registering for classes, processing transcripts and accessing student records. COD had drafted an open letter to other university systems and employers to explain why COD students had not been able to provide transcripts.

In spite of the progress, the college’s website remains inaccessible. A temporary website, codnews.org, remains available for students and staff to access resources.
The summer school schedule has not been affected, and third-party software for classes remain functional.
Nicholas Robles, the college’s public information officer, said Thursday the investigation into the malware attack is ongoing.
