Common Spirit, the largest hospital chains in the US, suffered a ransomware cyberattack that caused severe inconvenience to the facilities and to patients
The security breach led to delayed surgeries, hold-ups in patient care and forced the chain to reschedule doctor appointments across the country.
CommonSpirit Health confirmed it experienced an IT security issue that forced it to take part of its infrastructure offline. Sources says that the organization suffered a ransomware attack
The media reported that CHI Memorial Hospital (Tennessee), some St. Luke’s hospitals (Texas), and Virginia Mason Franciscan Health (Seattle) were impacted.
CommonSpirit did not share details about the problems its hospitals are facing across the country.
For now, none of the ransomware gangs claimed responsibility for the attack. It is unclear if the threat actors have stolen data from the infrastructure of the hotel chain.
