Enloe network back in action after ransomware attack two weeks ago

After being down for two weeks, Enloe Medical Center’s network infrastructure was “nearing full-functional restoration” on Friday (Jan. 17), according to a press release.

On Jan. 2, the hospital’s system was targeted by a ransomware attack (see “Network interference,” Newslines, Jan. 9). There is “no indication or evidence” suggesting patient data was accessed, according to the release.

“We truly appreciate the patience and support of our community while we were focusing on the investigation into this incident and restoring our core operating systems to full-functionality,” Enloe CEO Mike Wiltermood said in the press release.
