First ransomware-related death reported in Germany
The Duesseldorf University Clinic in Germany was hit by a ransomware attack last week that forced staffers to direct emergency patients elsewhere. The cyberattack “crippled the entire IT network of the hospital,” forcing staffers to redirect emergency patients elsewhere. As a result, a woman in life-threatening condition died after she had to be taken to another city for treatment, according to several outlets.
