Hackers have paralyzed the IT system and telecommunications at the Lindenbrunn Hospital in Coppenbrügge (Hameln-Pyrmont district).

The unknown perpetrators demanded money to make the systems available again. However, the hospital did not respond to this. How the perpetrators were able to break into the IT systems is being investigated. The hospital reports that patient care is not at risk. However, improvisation is necessary: ​​instead of digital patient files, written files are being created again.

“There is currently no indication as to whether patient or resident data is affected,” it says on the hospital’s website. “As part of a structured emergency plan, all systems were immediately taken offline and all connections to our facilities were cut off, including telephone connections.”

As is usual in such cases, the servers and databases are examined by the GPL IT with the support of external IT security experts and only after they have been released are the systems gradually put back into operation.
