Healthcare Under Attack – Cybercriminals Target Medical Institutions - Cybrary

InfoArmor has identified a group of bad actors performing targeted cyberattacks on healthcare institutions and their IT infrastructure, including connected medical devices such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging systems (MRI), X-ray machines and mobile computing healthcare workstations.

This group of bad actors has performed at least four successful attacks against US-based organizations of varying size, compromising a significant number of medical records. The threat actors claim to have stolen millions of medical records and gained unauthorized access for ransomware distribution.
