BLACKSBURG, Va. — Virginia Tech says it was targeted in two recent cyberattacks but feels confident no data was stolen. 

A spokesman for the Blacksburg university told the Roanoke Times Friday a few of the school's units used Kaseya. 

That U.S. software company was exploited in early July in a massive ransomware attack that snarled businesses around the world. 

In a separate attack on Virginia Tech in May, the spokesman says encryption data was used to attack a university server.
