Healthcare IT managers are bombarded these days with warnings about ongoing waves of ransomware attacks, as well as strategies and tactics for blocking them

In the last few weeks, the ransomware hackers behind Conti, Babuk, and Avaddon leaked data they claim to have stolen from at least five healthcare entities, which should serve as a warning to the sector that extortion attempts will continue to plague the sector in 2021, affording to Health IT Security.

Avaddon ransomware actors recently published about 2.09GB of data allegedly stolen from New Jersey-based Bridgeway Senior Healthcare, including financial information on the organization and its employees and tax information.

The post warns the entity that they intend to publish further proofs within the next week if the provider refuses to pay their demand. According to the post shared with HealthITSecurity.com, some files remain encrypted on Bridgeway Senior’s network.
