Attack didn’t affect ARH patient info



After a thorough investigation into the late August cyberattack on the Appalachian Regional Healthcare (ARH) system, findings from independent computer forensic experts and federal authorities show that no ARH patient or employee health or financial information was compromised in the attack.

The ransomware incident that occurred on August 27 and kept the ARH computer system down for nearly two weeks was identifi ed through a combined forensics analysis by Mainstream Security, the United States Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a new malware that had not been previously observed.
