Hollywood hospital becomes ransomware victim
A cyberattack launched against the Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center has forced staff to declare an “internal emergency” and left employees unable to access patient files.
According to NBC, the Southern California hospital has been left unable to practice its usual day-to-day operations. The hospital’s president and CEO Allen Stefanek said “significant IT issues” were discovered last week, leading to emergency measures including calling for the assistance of the FBI, Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and cyberforensics experts.
