Ransomware never takes a back seat: hospital apparently hit

Both of the following articles that I will be linking to were posted on the 6th. Looks like a large hospital network outside the United States was recently Hit. According to the article penned by Brian Krebs, this hospital may have bit the bucket with ransomware, although the spokesperson at the company did not say one way or the other.

The fact that one of the issues with the covid-19 virus we’re grapling with may be liver trouble, the hospital does deal with patients already getting a treatment called dialysis.

According to a snippet that is linked to Health Line, it says:

Dialysis is a treatment that filters and purifies the blood using a machine. This helps keep your fluids and electrolytes in balance when the kidneys can’t do their job. Dialysis has been used since the 1940s to treat people with kidney problems.

If Covid-19 has liver and kidney problems associated with it, and the machines to assist people with this problem in general can’t get the care they need, that can lead to death. Cyber Scoop did not indicate this in their coverage and both articles are well worth the read.

The Snake ransomware, according to Krebs, is a relatively new strain of ransomware. The fact of the matter is that we are not relaxing on our promise to quit attacking hospital and care facilities, are we, criminals? You indicated that you would quit attacking hospitals while they deal with this pandemic.

I knew you all were lying! In an article Everyone Is $$$ To Cybercriminals Using Ransomware it basically indicates that we are nothing but money, and we need to pay up every chance we get. And since Cyber crime up 4 times the norm? You bet! We’re going to be in for it until our world can return back to some sort of normacy.


When two of my sources pick this up, you know it is going to be huge. Don’t be fooled, it is huge, and I’m sure we’re not done yet. This is not going to get any better during this pandemic.

The comment boards await you.
