Israel’s National Cyber Directorate (INCD) is urging organizations across the country to bolster their cyber defenses following a disruptive ransomware attack against a hospital in Israel’s northwest.
The Hillel Yaffe Medical Center, situated in the city of Hadera, cancelled non-urgent procedures as staff reportedly resorted to using pen and paper after IT systems were disabled by a cyber-attack yesterday (October 13).
Indicators of compromise
The INCD, which is assisting with the hospital’s post-incident investigation and recovery, has shared indicators of compromise (IOCs) in order to help hospitals and other organizations spot evidence of similar network intrusions.
Evidence of unusual activity should be reported to the INCD, it added.
