German Attack being treated as homicide

Within the past several days, I posted this blog post that talked about the possibility of the first time where malware had something to do with a death. I recently found an article by Cyberscoop I neglected to post yesterday This will be mentioned in passing on today’s security box podcast.

The article in question is entitled German investigators treating ransomware attack as negligent homicide, reports say and it was a great read.

German prosecutors last week opened a homicide investigation into a deadly ransomware incident on a university hospital, according to multiple German media

If confirmed, it would be the first documented case of a death stemming, directly or indirectly, from a cyberattack, analysts say.

The incident highlights the starkly different risks facing organizations with vulnerable software. For some, the outdated code may cost them data. For
medical organizations, patient safety could be on the line. During the coronavirus pandemic, cybersecurity professionals around the world have been so
concerned by the hacking of health care organizations that they have volunteered their time to protect them.

This was asked about through Whats app, and will be mentioned in passing as part of news motes or the open forum. We’ll see what happens.
