Th: Hospital hack prompts call for cooperation

Wassayos Ngamkham has some interesting follow-up reporting on the recent attack  on Phetchabun Hospital. That hospital  and Bhumirajanagarindra Kidney Institute Hospital, both in Thailand, have been recently attacked, with the latter attack interfering with patient services.

The Cyber Crime Investigation Bureau (CCIB)’s preliminary investigation reportedly:

showed that a group of Indian hackers was behind the security breach at Phetchabun Hospital, and it was using a server in Singapore.

The group was also likely behind the hacking of a computer system at a hospital in the Northeast and that of Krungthai Bank, the CCIB had said earlier.

However, Pol Lt Gen Kornchai Klayklueng, commissioner of the CCIB, on Thursday said more recent information indicates the hackers were operating in the US.
