Ransomhouse Extortion Group Paralyzes Barcelona Hospital Operations.

February 14, 2024

INCIDENT

A cyberattack has targeted one of Barcelona’s leading hospitals, shutting down its computer system and forcing the cancellation of 150 non-urgent operations and up to 3000 patient checkups. The hospital's SAP system wasn't impacted, but all applications and communications remain broken as work to restore critical systems continues. This means that patient information for physicians is out of reach, and the situation impacts care services.

In addition to the cancellations mentioned above, the hospital delayed 800 urgent cases and diverted patients to other hospitals.
