News Tech: Southeast of Paris, near Corbeil-Essonnes, the CHSF Hospital Centre has been the target of a computer attack that started late Saturday night.

The hospital’s computer system was hacked, and an organised gang attempted to extort money from patients, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office, which has launched an investigation.

According to reports, hackers have demanded $10 million USD in English in order to halt the ransomware onslaught.

The inquiry is being led by the gendarme’s Center for Combating Digital Crime (C3N) branch, according to the prosecutor’s office.

In order to preserve health services, the CHSF hospital in Essonne, which has 1,000 beds and can treat a population of roughly 600,000 people in the greater Paris region, launched a so-called “white plan” emergency operation on Sunday.

All of the hospital’s business software, storage systems, including those for medical imaging, and the information system pertaining to patient admissions, according to the hospital, are now unreachable as a result of the attack. A type of ransomware has been found, and the National Authority for the Security and Defence of Information Systems (Anssi) was “immediately warned.”

The Ile-de-France region’s other public hospitals have been instructed to treat patients who need the hospital’s services. The medical and technological services, in particular medical biology, are currently operating for patients already admitted to the CHSF, but in a degraded manner.
