How cyber criminals care of national hea Melbourne
Hospitals in the Gippsland Health Alliance were recently attacked by pro cyber criminals. It was sort of ransomware attack. A cyber incident discovered on Monday blocked access to several systems due to ransomware, including financial management. Nevertheless, the department assured, no personal patient data had been accessed.
The Victorian Government, police and cyber experts from the capital work together at securing the network. It is still not known what impact the attack had on servers. Investigations are continuing. David Cullen, the principal adviser to the State Government on cyber incidents, said hospitals were dealing with "sophisticated cyber criminals". Isolation led up to shutdown of some important patient information. So, now the hospitals have no choice, but to go offline.
