According to the Dutch NCSC European hospitals are being targeted by pro-Russian hackers. The cyber-attacks have disrupted the normal functioning of these healthcare facilities. The motives behind the attacks are unclear, but the sources suggest that they may have been politically motivated. The hackers reportedly used sophisticated tactics, including the use of malware, to gain unauthorized access to the hospital systems. The affected hospitals have had to shut down their computer networks temporarily in order to contain the spread of the malware and prevent further damage.
Hospitals in the UK, Germany, Poland, Scandinavia and the United States also said they had been targeted.
Last week, the websites of German airports, public administrations and the financial sector suffered attacks attributed to the Killnet group.
