All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) New Delhi on Tuesday thwarted a malware attack on its servers, ensuring services remain fully secure and functional.
"A malware attack was detected at 2:50 pm by the cyber-security systems in AIIMS, New Delhi. The attempt was successfully thwarted, and the threat was neutralised by the deployed cyber-security systems..," tweets All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi.
This is the second cyberattack against AIIMS Delhi within a year as the premier medical institute faced disruption in services due to a cyberattack in November 2022. The servers of the medical institute went out of order due to the attack and the AIIMS also suspended two analysts for the alleged breach of cyber security.
Meanwhile, Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar in a tweet said, "E-Hospital.aiims.edu is an internal application not available for internet users. Someone may have tried accessing this portal and the alert was generated due to the security layer used by AIIMS. The same person may have taken a screenshot of the error msg and circulated it. There is no cyber incident or breach. Error msgs have also been rectified now."
