Hackers holding Royal Family medical records to ransom

A group of cyber criminals are threatening to publish the private medical records of the Royal Family following a data breach at an exclusive private London hospital.

The King Edward VII hospital was targeted in a cyberattack by the Rhysida ransomware group who have put the medical records up for auction on the dark web for £300,000.

The group have said they will publish the medical records if a bidder does not come forward.

The attack is the latest in a long line of incidents that have targeted the British Library, the University of West Scotland and the Prospect Medical Holdings Group in the US.
