The death of a baby born with complications during a 2019 ransomware attack on an Alabama hospital – one that left clinicians unable to access electronic health records and patient monitoring systems - is intensifying the spotlight on the potentially fatal consequences of such cyber incidents.
@cerberus this is a shocking example of when ransomware and malware become murder. The fact that the victim was a child makes this so much worse.
If they find the perpetrators of this crime, then the charges should include murder or at the least, manslaughter.
