Ransomware Attack at German Hospital Leads to Patient Death

Recently, on Thursday, the German authorities reported that they had encountered an allegedly misdirected ransomware attack that caused the breakdown of IT systems at a major hospital in Duesseldorf. Due to this ransomware attack, a woman who necessitated to get admitted urgently died after being taken to another city for treatment. 

It happened for the first time that a woman died because of the misdirected ransomware attack. The hospital asserted that the investigators have noticed that the source of the difficulty was a hacker attack on a weak place in “widely practiced commercial add-on software,” which it didn’t recognize.
