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.


  1. That is so dangerous that hackers stopped lab results, that can affect people in a serious way. I hope the hospital improves its computer security! Inconvenient for you, that is for sure.

    1. Thanks for your comment Terra, just hoping my results turn up sometime soon!
