Security Breach at the US Treasury
The United States Treasury and underlying commerce departments have been the victim of a cyber-attack, allegedly the group who carried out the attack is backed by a foreign government. The white house held a national security council meeting about the security breach on Saturday. The CISA and the FBI are currently investigating the attack. This attack comes less than a month after President Donald Trump fired Christopher Krebs, the nation’s top director of cybersecurity and infrastructure.
Solar Winds has suggested its users update their existing software.
The compromised software included the NTIA’s Microsoft office 365, and SolarWinds Orion. Both of which had been monitored by the group for months before the attack. Using a highly sophisticated hacking system, the group was able to bypass the authentication.
The United States Treasury is among many organizations all over the world to be hacked by this group. Orion is suggesting an immediate upgrade to all its users to address the vulnerability.
Across the Globe, officials are working to recover from this security breach.
Officials in the UK have reported a similar breach in security and have reported the compromises as a serious event. British officials are working to figure out how much data has been compromised in the UK. Both British and US officials have stated that it is an unknown foreign government, most likely a nation state. Officials have also commented on the severity of the breach and stated that the full scope of the attack is unclear, and many agencies are working to find out more specific information.

Nationwide Ransomware Scare
Recent ransomware attack on a major hospital chain is one of the largest cyberattacks in U.S. history. Could this have been prevented?
Wellington Regional Medical Center in South Florida, along with hundreds of other hospitals affiliated with Universal Health Services suffered a massive security breach, experts indicating it sounds like a ransomware attack.
On September 27th, Universal Health Care Services (UHS) fell victim to a ransomware security breach. UHS has over 400 network hospitals, with a large majority of them based here in the US. Systems were down on Monday, forcing doctors, nurses, and other hospital employees to rely on paper. These hospital employees still needed to complete their tasks and tend to their patients, but now their normally encrypted and confidential information had to be relayed on paper. The St. Lucie County Sherriff’s Office security breach last year in 2019 was a very similar situation.
Criminals have been targeting hospitals and healthcare institutions during the pandemic since certain codes of malware can scramble patient data. Even though no patient’s safety nor confidential records were compromised in this most recent attack, patients have died as a result of past unrelated security breaches. Given this information, hospitals are sometimes inclined to pay the ransom.
What is Ransomware
Ransomware is a type of malware used for extortion by gaining access to important data and locking out users of infected networks until the ransom is paid. The cost to recover this data can be from a few hundred dollars to thousands and sometimes even millions, which is to be paid to the cybercriminal in Bitcoin.
Medical facilities are a big target for cybercriminals to focus on for these types of attacks. Hospitals need immediate access to their files and therefore are more likely to pay off a ransom quickly. The most common delivery for ransomware is through email. It will seem like a file that you should trust but once opened, it can take control of the victim’s computer.
Previous Ransomware Attacks in Florida
In 2019, the City of Riviera Beach paid a six-figure ransom to recover data for the entire city. Riviera Beach was one of many cities to be targeted. The technology behind cryptocurrency is able to make millions of dollars untraceable after being sent to hackers, leaving the FBI no closer to finding the culprit. As previously mentioned, the St. Lucie County Sherriff’s Office also suffered a security breach in 2019.
How to Prevent Ransomware
Cybersecurity attacks including ransomware and phishing scams are extremely common and can almost always be prevented. They can be prevented with proper data backups and due diligence not to open unfamiliar emails and spam. It is also important to have proper cybersecurity monitoring. With all of these in place, businesses can rest assured that all their data stored is protected.
