The computers at the Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center have been down for more than a week as the Southern California hospital works to recover from a Ransomware attack. While HPMC officials are cooperating fully with the Los Angeles Police Department and the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation to discover the identity of the attackers, the network is still offline and staff are struggling to deal with the loss of email and access to some patient data. The hospital's President and CEO, Allen Stefanek, said the situation was declared an internal emergency, reportedly saying that the hospital's emergency room systems have been sporadically impacted by the malware. Some patients were transported to other hospitals due to the incident. In other parts of the hospital, computers essential for various functions, including CT scans, documentation, lab work, and pharmacy needs are offline. Registrations and medical records are being logged on paper and staff have been told to leave their systems offline until told otherwise. As of now, the attack has been designated as random.
