Costa Rica’s public health agency hit by Hive ransomware

Sergiu Gatlan reports:

All computer systems on the network of Costa Rica’s public health service (known as Costa Rican Social Security Fund or CCCS) are now offline following a Hive ransomware attack that hit them this morning.

Hive, a Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) operation active since at least June 2021, has been behind attacks on over 30 organizations, counting only the victims who refused to pay the ransom and had their data leaked online.

BleepingComputer was able to confirm that Hive ransomware was behind today’s attack after seeing one of the ransom notes.
