>>> Cyberattaque at the Corbeil-Essonnes hospital: with the forced return of paper and pen, the complicated daily life of
caregivers on September 23, the hackers who attacked the Corbeil-Essonnes hospital, have disclosed part of the hacked data on the Darknet. These are the names of colonoscopy and delivery.
Should patients worry?
Inevitably, personal data is something intimate. Personal data collectors, that is to say hospitals, liberal doctors, health insurance must ensure absolute confidentiality. So, yes, it's not very pleasant.
What is the will of these pirates?
The will of computer hackers is to put pressure on the hospital since we are dealing with Corbeil-Essonnes to a school case, that is to say an intrusion into the information system which Exfiltration of health data. And then, triggers a virus that blocks the computer system. We ask for a ransom. The ransom is not paid. So, we start the second floor of the rocket: "You don't want to pay the ransom and unlock your system? In addition to that, we have stolen health data. There are the names of your patients. You pay the ransom, otherwise we will broadcast them ". The hospital still refuses to pay the ransom. So there is a start of data dissemination. It's called putting pressure. We are still in a negotiation phase.

Swamped during the pandemic, an emergency-room doctor sums up his workplace this way: “challenging, understaffed and too small." What must the next government do to improve patient care?"You can imagine that's not a great place for a sick patient," said Tim Heely-Ray, the hospital's chief ER co-ordinator, on a rare tour of the ward at the only hospital in Montreal's West Island.
Can computer hackers negotiate directly with patients?
If, at one point, relations and discussions with the hospital center do not actually succeed in pirates can consider what had been done in Finland after the exfiltration of data from a group of psychiatry clinics, to contact patients directly to make them sing up to 300, 400 or 500 euros, threatening to reveal health information concerning them, deposit them on social networks, and reveal them to their loved ones. Not all health information is created equal. The operational report of the knee prosthesis or a dermatology problem does not have the same social impact, of course a revelation concerning cancer or a psychiatric problem linked to a burn-out or a Schizophrenia problem which is theoretically treated in the greatest confidentiality.
Is it easy to have access to this data in the Darknet?
There are few people who have the technicality to go to the Darknet. It remains something quite esoteric, all the same. We are on the web underground, there is a particular navigation protocol. We are not on the upper Internet, so we don't have a Google type search engine to do research. So it's a little more complicated. However, it is a public space. Anyone can go there. So it's just as painful and just as boring as if it was on the normal web. But for the moment, this does not drag on social networks, it is not found by traditional search engines. So, we are still in a relationship between the hostage lessee and the hostage which consists in highly put the pressure in the hope, obviously, that even if the initial ransom will never be paid, a piece of this ransom ends up with possibly be paid.
