The Ministry of Health and the National Cyber System have announced that there are suspicions of a cyberattack on the Kfar Shaul Eitanim Psychiatric Hospital in Jerusalem. As a result, the hospital's staff had to switch to manual procedures rather than using computer systems.
In the announcement they published, it was stated: "Suspicion of a cyber event at Kfar Shaul Eitanim Psychiatric Hospital. The hospital has switched to manual procedures. The medical teams continue to care for patients alongside an investigation of the event by the cyber team at the Ministry of Health and the National Cyber System."
It should be noted that just last month, Ma'ayanei Hayeshua Hospital in Bnei Brak dealt with a cyberattack that disabled all administrative computer systems. A few hours later, the hospital announced that it had managed to stop the attack. However, it was later revealed that as a result of the attack, personal information of patients had been leaked.
