Ransomware Has The Ability To Kill
There’s no limit to how big or small a ransomware attack, and its effects, can be. Like the Colonial Pipeline hack, it can be big enough to affect the majority of the East Coast of the United States. It can shutter a small business. It even has the potential to end a life.
“If someone is killed because they have to bypass a hospital – which happened recently, a woman died because she was in an ambulance and the hospital that she was closest to was under a ransom attack. As a result, she didn‘t get help fast enough. Those people should be charged with murder. They caused that hospital to go down, they caused this person’s death. That is a severe enough issue that they should be charged with death.”
