Re: Risky strategy?

It could easily be considered as a terrorist threat, and much worse. I believe there is a case in Germany where they are treating ransomware attacks as Murder. If this extends to multiple deaths, who knows it could be considered Genocide.

Either way, targeting healthcare like this is the lowest of the low, I can only hope that they are denied urgent medical treatment as a result of their own ransomware attack.
