Hacked Hospital back online after 5 wks
By Micah Halpern

Sunday November 28, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Five weeks ago, one of Israelís largest hospitals was hit by a cyberattack. Finally, over a month later, the hospital is back to normal operations.

Hadera's Hillel Yaffe Medical Center has returned to full operations after the ransomware attack that crippled the majority of the hospital's systems.

The cyberattack that all-but paralyzed the hospital was orchestrated by the Black Shadow hacker group.

Black Shadow is believed to be affiliated with Iran.

The cyber terrorists attacked the hospital with ransomware. They demanded money. The hospital refused to meet their demands and pay.

It took over a month, but they finally fixed their system. In the interim they used an alternative web system and relied on good, old fashioned, low tech, pen and paper to keep records.

Patient care did not suffer.
