‘Small part’ of hospital computer system hit by DDoS attack, ministry says

The Health Ministry and National Cyber Directorate are assessing damage after a DDoS attack on the computer system at the Kfar Shaul psychiatric hospital near Jerusalem.

“As of now, no damage has been found in the clinical system,” the Health Ministry says.

It says the attack affected a “small part” of the hospital’s computer system, but the entire network was disconnected from the internet as soon as the attack was identified as a precautionary measure.

The hospital is continuing to work by old-fashioned analog handwriting as the incident is surveyed and dealt with, the ministry says.
