Columbus Regional Healthcare System Targeted by Daixin Team

The health system attempted to negotiate with the extortion group, though negotiations stalled.

By HFT Original

The ransomware and extortion group, Daixin Team, has claimed responsibility for a ransomware attack on the non-profit Indiana health system, Columbus Regional Healthcare System, and claims to have exfiltrated 70 gigabytes of data from the 154-bed hospital. The group says it initially demanded payment of $2 million but after negotiating with the hospital or a third party, reduced the demand to $1 million; however, negotiations appear to have broken down. 

Columbus Regional Healthcare System has yet to confirm the attack and it is currently unclear to what extent patient data is involved. Daixin Team is expected to start releasing the stolen data shortly if ransom negotiations do not resume.
