NY State confirms cyberattack at St. Lawrence County hospitals

Jeff Cole reports:

The New York State Department of Health confirms there has been a cyberattack within the St. Lawrence Health System, which operates Canton-Potsdam and Gouverneur hospitals.

Ambulances were being diverted and computer systems were down — at least at some point.  This sounds like a ransomware attack but the health system has not confirmed it yet, and there are no notices on either of the two hospitals’ sites with any information or updates.
