FBI thwarts cyberthreat against Boston Children’s Hospital by hackers sponsored by Iranian government

WCVB reports:

Hackers sponsored by the Iranian government tried to get into the computer systems of Boston Children’s Hospital last year; however, they were stopped with the help of the Boston Division of the FBI, officials announced Wednesday.

FBI agents contacted the hospital on Aug. 3, 2021, and provided officials with a cybersecurity advisory.
