Cloud disruption disables cancer radiation treatments.
A ransomware attack against Elekta, a firm whose software is used to operate linear accelerators used in cancer treatment, led the company to take its cloud offline, disrupting cancer care at a number of hospitals. Affected hospitals are moving patients to other facilities as they scramble to keep up the treatments, WTNH reports. Becker's Hospital Review says the incident has affected at least forty health systems in the US, including Yale New Haven Health in Connecticut, Lifespan in Rhode Island, and Southcoast Health in Massachusetts. An Elekta spokesperson told Becker's that services have been restored, and the company doesn't believe any patient information was compromised.
Deepfakes (but kind of shallow).
Someone impersonating a spokesman for imprisoned Russian opposition figure Alexandr Navalny conducted Zoom meetings with European Parliament members. The sessions featured what the Guardian and NL Times call a deepfake video call purporting to be Navalny associate Leonid Volkov. Speculation about responsibility for the incident has focused on "Vovan and Lexus," two well-known Russian prankers.
