KD Hospital has suffered a ransomware attack. The hospital filed an FIR at the Bopal Police station on Tuesday confirming that the attack blocked staff from accessing all online systems, CCTV footage, patient data, hospital files, and software.
“The ransomware attack took place at around 2 am on May 13. All server data of the hospital on its online server was encrypted. A ransom demand was made via an email by the attackers of USD 70,000 in bitcoins to decrypt the files. The servers are still down,” said AP Chaudhary, police inspector, Bopal police station.
However, a high ranking official for the hospital claims that the hospital’s online system is up and running.
“Our servers – containing all our software – were down for a day but we worked manually. The servers are now up and running. We got another server for backup. The healthcare services were not affected. An NFSU (National Forensic Sciences University) team and cyber crime police are also investigating the matter. It will take another week for the audit report. Based on that, we will get to know if there were any system vulnerabilities. We might have to make some rectification in our IT infrastructure accordingly,” they said.
