Nothing stops hackers, not even a pandemic peak. According to France Bleue, the hospital of Saint-Gaudens (Haute-Garonne) has in turn been the victim of ransomware since yesterday morning, Thursday April 8. This is the fourth time that a healthcare facility has been affected by this kind of malware in the space of two months. Pirates had already attacked the hospitals of Dax, Villefranche-sur-Saône and Oloron-Sainte-Marie.
In Sainte-Gaudens, services are now running at idle and the servers have been “Blocked” to prevent the spread of malicious code. Office systems are at a standstill. Caregivers must function ” old “, with paper documents. However, the telephone network, which no longer worked, has just been put back into service.
Also to discover in video:
For patients, the impact is, after all, low. All services are functioning, including operating theaters, imaging, emergencies and the Covid-19 unit. The hospital has received a ransom demand which obviously will not be paid. It must be said that the direction is starting to be broken in. The establishment was already affected by a cyber attack a few weeks ago.
