Seattle cancer center confirms cyberattack after ransomware gang threats

“A prominent cancer center based in Seattle is dealing with a cyberattack claimed by a notorious cybercrime gang that currently appears to be extorting the healthcare facility. “

“On Friday morning, the Hunters International ransomware group listed the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center on its leak site, claiming to have stolen 533 GB of data. Reports said the group was extorting individual patients as well. “

“When asked about the listing, a spokesperson for the facility directed Recorded Future News to a statement from December 11 confirming that it notified federal law enforcement agencies following the detection of unauthorized activity on its clinical network. “

“The organization previously issued a statement on December 1 saying it was forced to “quarantine” servers and take its clinical network offline after discovering the attack in an effort to “contain the impact.” “
