Hackers have allegedly demanded approximately Rs 200 crore in cryptocurrency from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Delhi, whose server has been down for six days in a row.
The breach discovered on Wednesday morning is thought to have compromised the data of 3-4 crore patients. According to the report, patient care services in the emergency, outpatient, inpatient, and laboratory wings were managed manually because the server was still down. The Delhi Police, the Ministry of Home Affairs, and the India Computer Emergency Response Team are investigating the ransomware attack. The Delhi Police’s Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Operations division has filed an extortion and cyberterrorism case.
