Ransomware Encrypts Network Hospital US

Thousands of workers of an American hospital five days can make use of an important network because some files were encrypted by ransomware. Because of the infection, it was decided to remove the network from the air.

The network is used by more than 4,000 employees at the James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital in Florida. "Some documents were infected on the shared drive and left an alarm," a spokeswoman told the Tampa Tribune. "This could affect all employees with computer access, more than 4,000 people." The damage is now mapped. All files on the network, there was a back-up, according to the spokeswoman. How ransomware could spread on the hospital network was not disclosed.
