FLINT, MI – Hurley Medical Center has confirmed it was the victim of a “cyber attack” a day after hacktivists threatened action over Flint’s water crisis.
The hospital confirmed the attack Thursday, Jan. 21, but few details were released.
“Hurley Medical Center has IT systems in place, which aid in detecting a virus or cyber attack,” hospital spokeswoman Ilene Cantor said. “As such, all policies and protocols were followed in relation to the most-recent cyber attack on our system. Patient care was not compromised and we are closely monitoring all systems to ensure IT security is consistently maintained.”
