What Happened?

On May 1, 2023, Mission Community Hospital discovered that it had fallen victim to a data breach, potentially exposing sensitive personal information in its systems. By May 31, 2023, RansomHouse, a well-known ransomware group, had publicly shared several files online as proof of the attack. These files included data from Mission Community Hospital’s imaging system, employee records, and financial reports. In response to the incident, the hospital sought the help of a cybersecurity firm to conduct a forensic investigation, aiming to understand the nature of the breach and assess the extent of unauthorized activities. Following the investigation, it was determined that an unauthorized entity had gained access to files containing patient information and other sensitive data.
