Crypto-hackers are holding the Costa Rican healthcare system to ransom for $5B in bitcoin

Tuesday, the Costa Rican healthcare system became the target of hackers known as ‘Hive’ who, after encrypting the Social Security agency’s servers have demanded that it pays “$5,000,000 in bitcoin” to decrypt them again. 

As a precaution, the agency shut down its systems, leaving thousands of people needing medical attention in the dirt, thanks to the greed of these malevolent hackers. As if hospitals didn’t have enough virus to deal with already right now.
