MIT Technology Review: Ransomware did not kill a German hospital patient

MIT Technology Review: Ransomware did not kill a German hospital patient. “When a German hospital patient died in September while ransomware disrupted emergency care at the facility, police launched a negligent-homicide investigation and said they might hold the hackers responsible. The case attracted worldwide attention because it could have been the first time law enforcement considered a cyberattack to be directly responsible for a death. But after months of investigation, police now say the patient was in such poor health that she likely would have died anyway, and that the cyberattack was not responsible.”
