Russian Medical Lab Helix Hit by Ransomware Attack

October 2, 2023


Customers of the Russian medical laboratory Helix have been unable to receive their test results for several days due to a “serious” cyberattack that crippled the company's systems over the weekend. Hackers attempted to infect the company's systems with ransomware. The company told Russian state-owned news agency Tass that its tech team partially restored the functionality of its website, mobile app and other e-health services without paying a ransom.

No customer personal data was leaked. Service disruptions prevented the company from delivering medical test results to its customers on time. Helix did not respond to a request for comment. It is unclear which group is responsible.
