勒索病毒瘫痪德国一医院,致一患者死亡

First Ransomware-Related Death Reported in Germany After Attack Paralyzes Hospital

It sounds like something out of a tragic Black Mirror episode: A woman seeking urgent care died this week after an apparently bungled ransomware attack took down a major hospital in Germany, thus forcing paramedics to rush her to another city for treatment, according to several outlets.

这听起来像是个悲惨的黑镜事件:多家媒体报道称,一种勒索软件攻击了德国一家大医院,迫使医护人员赶往另一个城市治疗,导致一名寻求紧急治疗的妇女在本周死亡

It appears to be the first case of someone dying as a result of a ransomware attack, albeit indirectly, and German authorities are investigating the unknown hackers on suspicion of negligent manslaughter, the Associated Press reports

美联社报道称,这可能是第一起勒索软件攻击致死案件,尽管这是间接的,德国当局正在调查这些身份不明的黑客,他们涉嫌过失杀人。

Beginning Thursday night, the attack disrupted the IT systems at Duesseldorf University Clinic, crippling its ability to access data and forcing it to postpone all scheduled operations and direct emergency patients elsewhere. The event under investigation happened on Friday, when a woman in a life-threatening condition was rushed to a hospital roughly 20 miles away, delaying her treatment by about an hour, which resulted in her death.

勒索软件自周四晚上发起攻击,干扰杜塞尔多夫大学诊所的信息技术系统,削弱它获取数据的能力,导致该医院推迟所有原定手术并将病人送往其它地方。而致死事件则发生在周五,一名有生命危险的妇女被紧急送往大约20英里外的医院,治疗延误了约一个小时,导致她抢救无效死亡。
