Some US hospitals plan to pay ransom to solve the problem of encrypted ransomware Ryuk infection

According to foreign media today, some hackers are threatening hospitals around the world with a malware called Ryuk. Now, some hospitals from the United States have decided to pay ransom to solve this problem. In Alabama, three hospitals have been attacked, including the DCH Regional Medical Center in Tuscaloosa, the Northport Medical Center, and the Fayette Medical Hospital, all of which were infected this month. It is reported that Ryuk is a Trojan virus that decrypts files by encrypting files on a computer network and then requesting payment with bitcoin. According to a recent Coveware report, Ryuk will require a ransom of approximately $288,000 for each attack.
