An initial investigation strongly suggests that an external intruder caused the incident. The company has isolated the affected customer environments, confirming they are not connected to any other Advania services or customers.

“Our security systems detected the breach in time. We isolated the affected customer environment and were able to limit the consequences. Our security systems and routines have worked as planned. We have not received malicious code (such as ransomware) in the affected customer environment,” Advania said. The company reported the incident to the police and wants to resume normal operations quickly.

The Boras Tidning, a local newspaper, reported that many healthcare centers are struggling with limited IT availability, which is causing difficulties in keeping their operations running.

“We cannot access any medical records, perform any tests, and can only issue paper prescriptions. We are unable to admit any patients,” said Per Svensson, the operations manager at Herkules Healthcare Center in Borås, to the newspaper.
