Government officials warn that Russian hackers are increasing already-common cyber attacks on hundreds of U.S. hospitals.

In the days following the warning, an unexpected cluster of attacks hit hospitals’ computer systems. Many hospitals never receive a ransom note.

Cyberattacks on America’s health systems have become their own kind of pandemic over the past year as Russian cybercriminals have shut down clinical trials and treatment studies for the coronavirus vaccine and cut off hospitals’ access to patient records, demanding multimillion-dollar ransoms for their return.

A couple weeks later, Donald Trump fires Christopher Krebs, the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) — the agency responsible for defending against these attacks.
