Hospital Sues Bank of America Over Million-Dollar Cyberheist
“A public hospital in Washington state is suing Bank of America to recoup some of the losses from a $1.03 million cyberheist that the healthcare organization suffered in 2013.
In April 2013, organized cyber thieves broke into the payroll accounts of Chelan County Hospital No. 1 , one of several hospitals managed by the Cascade Medical Center in Leavenworth, Wash. The crooks added to the hospital’s payroll account almost 100 ‘money mules,’ unwitting accomplices who’d been hired to receive and forward money to the perpetrators.
