Cyberattack strikes down Colorado’s Parkview Medical Center

One week after suffering an as yet unnamed type of cyberattack, Parkview Medical Center’s network is still inoperative.

The Pueblo, Colo. medical facility has given no details on the attack other than a post on its homepage saying its network is out. Local news reports say a statement from the hospital was received from a private Gmail account, indicating the 370-bed facility’s email system is affected.

This is the only notification on Parkview's website concerning the attack.

KKTV received a brief statement from hospital officials saying patient treatment will not be impacted and that an outside cybersecurity firm has been contracted to handle the problem.

A request to Parkview for further information from SC Media has not yet been answered.
