Hackers really are a pain in the proverbial. I went to the hospital yesterday to see the anesthetist about the results of some pre-op blood tests...except the blood results were unavailable...some hackers had attacked the laboratory and their system was down and will be down for over a week apparently. The laboratory is not a local one, it is nationwide which means thousands of people waiting for test results have been affected.
What can possibly go through the mind of a person who would do such a thing. I suppose they held or are holding the lab to ransom, but even so nothing justifies such an irresponsible and despicable act.
