    German ransomware attack kills hospital patient

    A female patient’s death may have been the first fatality attributable to this kind of cybersecurity attack

    On Sept. 9, a ransomware attack took over the hospital’s computer systems, making them inoperable. A female patient scheduled for a lifesaving procedure had to be transferred to another hospital 19 miles away in Wuppertal. She died during the trip.
