Ransomware infects firm serving more than 100 nursing homes nationwide

"A laptop displays a message June 27, 2017, after being infected by a ransomware as part of a worldwide cyberattack. Virtual Care Provider, a Milwaukee company that provides technology services to more than 100 nursing homes nationwide, has informed its clients that it is the victim of a ransomware attack. Hackers are demanding $14 million to restore the company’s access to its hijacked servers.


Virtual Care Provider Inc. informed its clients about the attack in a letter Nov. 18, which was a day after the attack was discovered. In it, the company said it was working to determine if any client data had been compromised. It said about 20% of its services were affected by the virus and that it needs to rebuild 100 of its servers."
