CA: Yuba-Sutter Medical Clinic discloses August ransomware attack

Yuba-Sutter Medical Clinic is notifying patients after a ransomware attack on August 3.

Fortunately, the center was able to regain access relatively quickly and no data were lost, although they acknowledge that they did experience some delays in accessing internal information and patient information while they worked to regain access.

As far as they can tell, no patient or personal information was released or exfiltrated as a result of the attack.

The center has undertaken a review of its hardware, software, and security policies in hopes of reducing a recurrence of this type of situation or reducing any resulting delays in service, but notes, quite honestly, that they cannot guarantee that this type of attack will not happen again.

Their notification template does not indicate how the ransomware was injected into the system.
