Ascension Health Confirms Ransomware Attack

It was a ransomware attack. Ascension Health on Friday confirmed that the hack that’s frozen their computer system is a ransomware attack.

Ascension says they are now working with the FBI to try and unfreeze their computers. The hack nearly paralyzed Ascension’s hospitals and clinics across the state. Doctors cannot access patient records, and that’s forced delays and cancellations across the entire Ascension network. There’s no word just how much the hackers want to release Ascension’s files.
