Pro-Russian hackers claim responsibility for cyber attacks on U.S. hospitals
A pro-Russian hacking group is claiming responsibility for cyberattacks on several hospitals in the United States.
The attack came just days after the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it took down a ransomware group that was also targeting hospitals in what was called “The Hive” attack.
U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland says they’ve seen how cyber attacks on medical facilities can be very disruptive.
“The Hive ransomware attack was able to prevent the hospital from accepting new patients,” Garland explained. “The hospital was also forced to rely on paper copies for patient information.”
