Alabama Hospitals Pay Ransom

So that will encourage the people keep executing attacks. DCH pays hackers responsible for ransomware attack.

The DCH Health System has made a payment to the hackers responsible for the crippling attack on its computer system that’s impacted operations at its three hospitals since early Tuesday morning.

Because it is easier to pay ransom to a bunch of criminals than spend the money to secure and backup your systems ahead of time. Besides, at least for now, you can buy insurance for these kinds of hacks. I can’t believe that the insurance companies can keep this up forever.
