A company that provides technology services to more than 100 nursing homes across the U.S. is the victim of a ransomware attack, with hackers demanding $14 million before they’ll restore access to its hijacked servers.
Virtual Care Provider informed its clients of the attack in a November 18 letter, a day after the attack was discovered. The company said it was working to determine if any client data had been compromised, disclosing that about 20% of its services were affected by the virus and that it needs to rebuild 100 of its servers.
