Radu Dumitrescu reports: The Saint Gheorghe Recovery Hospital in Botoşani, in northeastern Romania, was the target of a ransomware attack in December, and medical activity is still impacted. Hackers demanded 3 Bitcoin for the decryption of the data on the servers. The attack is similar to the one in the summer of 2019, when four other hospitals in Romania were targeted. The hackers apparently got through by using a remote connection accessed by one of the maintenance companies. The hackers entered the system and encrypted the December database. After that, they left a message, in English, asking for a ransom of 3 Bitcoin, or approximately EUR 46,400. Read more at Romania Insider.
