Who'll be next?

from here and here

A hospital in Illinois is closing it's doors (in part) because of a ransomware attack that took them offline for weeks and prevented them from submitting insurance claims, which means they couldn't make money. I'm sure the crooks responsible aren't losing any sleep over the new medical desert they've created and the deaths that will probably result when people having medical emergencies can't hold on for the now half hour it will take to get to the next closest emergency room. And because they aren't losing any sleep over it, they're probably not going to do anything to avoid doing it again.
