RansomWare Virus Attack: NIC Team reaches Berhampur
Even as Odisha IT Minister tried to put up a volt face yesterday, saying the state is not under any threat from the global WannaCry Ransomware virus attack, the information management system of Berhampur City Hospital has reportedly been hacked.
The alleged attack by WannaCry ransomware virus has reportedly affected the e-medicine services and payment to ASHA workers since Monday. The hackers have demanded $300 as per the initial reports.
The Odisha Government immediately rushed the National Informatics Centre (NIC) team to Berhampur to review the situation and verify whether the attack was related to WannaCry ransomware virus.
