Two techies suspended as Delhi AIIMS server down for 8 days

New Delhi: Two analysts have been suspended as the server at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Delhi remained out of order for eight consecutive days. After the suspension of two analysts from Delhi more are on the radar for suspension for breaching cyber security, news agency ANI quoted sources as saying. According to ANI sources, “The sanitizing process started, earlier it was 15 but now 25 out of 50 servers and more than 400 endpoint computers have been scanned. Antivirus uploading has also been started for future safety. Earlier on Tuesday, AIIMS in a statement said, “The e-Hospital data has been restored on the servers. The network is being sanitized before the services can be restored. The process is taking some time due to the volume of data and a large number of servers/computers for the hospital services. Measures are being taken for cyber security.”

Though the e-hospital data has been restored, the network is still being ‘sanitized’ before the services can be restored. Further, measures are being taken to avert any such cyber attacks in the future. All hospital services, including outpatient, in-patient, laboratories, etc., will continue to run in manual mode for the time being.
