N.J. hospital halts admitting patients after cybersecurity issue | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #ransomware

CentraState Medical Center is halting new admissions Friday due to a cybersecurity issue, a spokeswoman for the Freehold facility told NJ Advance Media.

Only limited information was provided, but the spokeswoman said the hospital was not accepting new patients because it was “experiencing some technical problems related to an IT security issue,” which it is investigating.

The cause and impact, however, are still unknown, the spokeswoman said.

“Critical patient care has not been adversely affected, but as a precautionary measure we have diverted all new patients to other facilities for care,” the spokeswoman said.

The FBI is aware of the issue, according to a report by New Jersey 101.5. The agency couldn’t be immediately reached for comment.
