Irish health service shuts down IT systems due to “signficant” cyber attack



>Ireland’s healthcare service has been forced to close down its computers systems due to a “significant ransomware attack”.

The Health Service Executive (HSE), confirmed on Twitter this morning (14th May) that it had shut down IT systems as a precaution due to the ongoing situation.

“There is a significant ransomware attack on the HSE IT systems,” the Irish health service said.

“We have taken the precaution of shutting down all our IT systems in order to protect them from this attack and to allow us full assess the situation with our own security partners,” the tweet added.

Another major ransomware attack, this time on Irish healthcare services. Very concerning.
