Fortalice Solutions continues to monitor a pro-Russia hacking group, known as “KillNet,” that is targeting U.S. hospital systems and executing distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. Fortalice wants to offer a follow-up advisory for our clients given that KillNet has significantly modified and escalated its approach and tactics. There are proactive measures to counter possible attacks that hospital systems across the United States can adopt immediately.
“KillNet” – a pro-Russia group known for distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks in nations opposed to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine – attacked at least 14 websites of prominent hospital systems in the United States, knocking their public-facing websites offline temporarily. Impacted organizations have noted only short-term disruptions to their websites and no impacts to the targets’ operations. DDoS attacks can be caused when an organization’s websites are flooded with incoming network traffic, thereby overwhelming the system.

The attack on critical infrastructure that darkened the Southern Pines area of North Carolina, is just the latest in a series of similar attacks stretching from Oregon to Florida. More ominously, it’s a threat that many experts believe is only getting bigger.
