Mission Community Hospital Confirms Recent Ransomware Attack and Investigates Potential Data Breach

“On May 31, 2023, a ransomware group added Mission Community Hospital to its victim list, claiming to have stolen 2.5 TB of data, including a large amount of patient data“

“While Mission Community Hospital has confirmed the breach, the hospital is still investigating the incident and has not yet released a list of compromised data types. “

“. If and when Mission confirms that patient data was leaked, the company will be required to begin sending out data breach notification letters to all individuals who were impacted by the recent data security incident. “

“Subsequently, on June 1, 2023, counsel for Mission Community Hospital released a letter confirming the cyberattack. Evidently, Mission first learned of the issue when it was investigating a network switch failure on May 1, 2023. As the hospital investigated the failure, it found evidence of a compromise. Mission’s continued investigation determined the ransomware group accessed the hospital IT network through vulnerabilities existing in both the network and the VMware environments.“
