“A cancer patient from the Scranton area has filed a class-action lawsuit against Lehigh Valley Health Network after a cybercriminal group stole sensitive data including nude images from the network and posted them online after LVHN refused to pay a ransom. The health network based in Allentown was targeted in a February attack by ALPHV, also known as BlackCat, a group associated with Russia and known for similar acts in academia and healthcare. BlackCat demanded a ransom payment, which LVHN refused to pay. The U.S. Department of Health and Human services said in a warning in January that BlackCat has demanded ransoms as high as $1.5 million.”
