Victorian hospitals quarantine IT systems after ransomware attack
IT systems at a number of hospitals and health services in Gippsland and south-west Victoria, including some patient record and booking systems, have been affected by a ransomware attack, the Victorian government says.
The incident, which was uncovered yesterday, has blocked access to several systems including financial management. The hospitals affected are part of the Gippsland Health Alliance and of the South West Alliance of Rural Health, including University Hospital Geelong.
