(Machine translation):

The Trois Cantons ambulances in Peyrehorade have lost all their files and appointments for the next few weeks.

“As if it had crashed”. Tuesday, December 6, around 5:30 p.m., the ambulances of the Three Cantons in Peyrehorade, in the south of the Landes, were the victims of a cyberattack with a ransom demand, indicates Nicolas Huoar, co-manager of the company with his wife.

…. “As soon as we saw that there was a problem, we printed our diary until Saturday, December 10 inclusive. But from Monday, December 12, we no longer have any database. It is not known which patients were scheduled, or at what times. We also lost the telephone numbers”, explains the paramedic, who “calls on the network to transmit the information and tell our patients to call us back to avoid missing the appointments that were planned”.
