Cyber-war 2024 (General)

Looking into U.S. healthcare providers reeling from cyberattack.

This appears to be an extremely disruptive 'event' that has been massively under reported.

Some relevant snippets:

Change Healthcare processes about 50% of medical claims in the U.S. for around 900,000 physicians, 33,000 pharmacies, 5,500 hospitals and 600 laboratories.

There is virtually no information regarding how this happened.

There is this, but it is unsubstantiated, and it's all we've been told as far as I can tell:

WASHINGTON, Feb 28 (Reuters) - In a message posted to, and then quickly deleted from their darknet site, the hackers blamed for striking the United Health Group (UNH.N), opens new tab said on Wednesday they stole millions of sensitive records, including medical insurance and health data, from the company. In its claim of responsibility, the group known as "Blackcat" or "ALPHV" posted a statement to its site saying it had stolen 8 terabytes of data from UnitedHealth, according to screenshots of the posting shared online by cybersecurity researchers.

So, we have this 'attack' that is still happening, and we have no idea how it started or who is responsible, and it is interfering with the health care infrastructure in the US. And the MSM is not asking serious questions and it is not, generally, being discussed. And the government is doing essentially nothing aside from an investigation.

So this is what we're supposed to accept as business as usual. Nothing to see here, folks.

Frog in the pot.
