TAMPA, Florida, Apr. 24, 2017 – An apparent criminal cyber attack that has affected a limited portion of its customers was reported today by Greenway Health to its affected customers, the company says.
The incident involves “ransomware,” in which the attackers freeze access to data and offer to restore it in exchange for a ransom payment. The company says it is working with law enforcement, including the FBI.
“We deeply regret any disruption this criminal attack could cause to your practice and for any concerns it may cause to your patients,” CEO Scott Zimmerman told affected customers Monday morning.
Zimmerman emphasized that there is no evidence at this time that any patient data has been “exfiltrated” or otherwise misused. And he said the company has backup data and expects
little or no data loss. The impact of this attack appears limited to some Internet-hosted users of the company’s Intergy platform.
“Based on our current understanding of the circumstances, we have no reason to believe this attack will extend to our customers on other platforms. Though we build extensive safeguards into our products and services, no Internet-based system is completely immune from attack. We are continuously focused on evaluating additional measures that we may take to further enhance our defenses against cybercrime."Scott Zimmerman, CEO, Greenway Health
The company said it will be providing enhanced customer service and support to affected practices, and will provide additional information to its customers later today. Customers who have not experienced difficulty are unlikely to be affected, but anyone concerned should call 877-932-6301.
