Server facility resumes at AIIMS two weeks after ransomware attack

The server facility at the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) Delhi main hospital building resumed Tuesday, two weeks after the ransomware attack.

The director’s office, the Dr. BR Ambedkar Institute Rotary Cancer Hospital, the Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, the Cardiothoracic and Neurosciences Centre, and the Centre for Dental Education and Research are all situated in the hospital’s main building.

The facility will be fully operational in the upcoming days, according to officials, who also noted that some registrations at the new Rajkumari Amrita Kaur (RAK) OPD and the trauma centre were completed via the server.

“Both offline and online registrations were done on Tuesday at the new RAK OPD,” said an official. However, the doctors said that old data is still not visible on the server leading to interrupted medical services for patients who got their blood tests and other tests done before the server hack.

On November 24, the cyber hack incident brought the online management system of the institute to a halt and raised concerns over the data of crores of patients being compromised, including that of high-profile political personalities.

The hospital had said that the server might have been subjected to a ransomware attack.
