NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — Rutgers University continues to work to restore its computer network following a "denial of service" attack that crippled campus computer systems.

The university's IT Department expects to have an update on Thursday.

Rutgers' Internet service went down around 10 a.m. Monday. Many online functions are still unavailable to students, faculty and university staff.

Rutgers technicians had to restore Internet service following a cyberattack at the beginning of the month that lasted five days.

The FBI is investigating.
