The server of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi has been down for 6 days. Hackers have allegedly demanded approximately Rs. 200 crores in cryptocurrency from the Institute, according to the news agency PTI.

Internet access has reportedly been disabled on hospital computers based on the recommendations of the investigating agencies.

The authorities fear that the data of crores of patients might be compromised

However, the Delhi Police has claimed that there has been no demand for the ransom. The news of the ransom demand has been brought to the notice of the authorities of AIIMS.

As the servers have been down for almost a week, the patient care services in laboratory wings, inpatient, outpatient, and emergency wings were managed manually as a result of the ransomware attack. The authorities fear that the breach, which was discovered on Wednesday, might have already compromised the data of over 4 crore patients.
