RansomHouse attack disrupts multinational Colombian health provider

Colombian healthcare provider Keralty, which has a network of hospitals and medical centers in the U.S., Latin America, Spain, and Asia, had its company and subsidiary websites and operations disrupted by a RansomHouse ransomware attack on Sunday, reports BleepingComputer. Colombia's healthcare system has been significantly impacted by the attack on Keralty, which initially reported on Monday that it was experiencing technical issues before finally revealing the following day that its servers have been subjected to a cyberattack. Investigation into the incident is ongoing and Keralty has already sought the assistance of law enforcement authorities. Meanwhile, BleepingComputer has associated a "Dear Keralty" ransom note on a VMware ESXi server shared by a Twitter user and initially reported by Camilo Andrs Garca to the RansomHouse ransomware operation. RansomHouse has since confirmed to have conducted the attack on Nov. 27, from which they have allegedly stolen 3TB of data from Keralty. Such an attack comes after the group claimed to launch attacks against AMD and ADATA.
