Woman dies during a ransomware attack on a German hospital

A woman in Germany died during a ransomware attack on the Düsseldorf University Hospital, in what may be the first death directly linked to a cyberattack on a hospital. The hospital couldn’t accept emergency patients because of the attack, and the woman was sent to a health care facility around 20 miles away.

It could be the first death directly linked to a cybersecurity attack.
