InfoNetworks’ data connections support the added influx of traffic to the office while the included cloud-based PBX allows for extensions to be accessible via mobile device or laptop. The Unified Technology Solution network supports a mix of Desktop, Softphones, Teams, SIP and PRI interfaces.

Ransomware attack shuts down Indiana health system’s network


Franklin, Ind.-based Johnson Memorial Health was struck Oct. 2 by a ransomware attack that disabled its computer network.

The health system is working with the FBI and cybersecurity experts to restore its computer operations, according to a news release. The health system said ransomware attacks take time to resolve, so it may be several days before its computer systems are fully operational.

No appointments or surgeries have been canceled, the health system said. Patients are expected to receive services as scheduled, but it’s recommended patients arrive earlier than normal, as registration processes are expected to be slower.

Hackers breached computer network at key US port but did not disrupt operations

    (CNN) — Suspected foreign government-backed hackers last month breached a computer network at one of the largest ports on the US Gulf Coast, but early detection of the incident meant the intruders weren’t in a position to disrupt shipping operations, according to a Coast Guard analysis of the incident obtained by CNN and a public statement from a senior US cybersecurity official.

The incident at the Port of Houston is an example of the interest that foreign spies have in surveilling key US maritime ports, and it comes as US officials are trying to fortify critical infrastructure from such intrusions.

“If the compromise had not been detected, the attacker would have had unrestricted remote access to the [IT] network” by using stolen log-in credentials, reads the US Coast Guard Cyber Command’s analysis of the report, which is unclassified and marked “For Official Use Only.” “With this unrestricted access, the attacker would have had numerous options to deliver further effects that could impact port operations.”

The Port of Houston is a 25-mile-long complex through which 247 million tons of cargo move each year, according to its website.

It’s unclear who was behind the breach, which appears to be part of a broader espionage campaign. When asked about the incident at a Senate hearing on Thursday, US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Director Jen Easterly said she believed a foreign government-backed hacking group was responsible.

Attribution of cyberattacks “can always be complicated,” Easterly told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. “At this point in time, I would have to get back with my colleagues, but I do think it is a nation-state actor.”

“The campaign thus far is limited, but we’re continuing to work through it and I’m happy to keep you apprised,” she told lawmakers.

The Coast Guard’s analysis did not mention a foreign government or the Port of Houston, but Easterly…

Banditry: Ban on mobile telecommunications network continues until


Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State says the ban on mobile telecommunications network will remain until security personnel record win the fight against insecurity in the state.

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) directed mobile telecommunications network providers to shut down their networks in Zamfara State for two weeks as part of measures to tackle the activities of bandits.

PREMIUM TIMES reported how people in the state now travel to Sokoto and Funtua in Katsina State to make calls, send messages and do financial transactions.

The ban was to expire on Friday. But speaking to BBC Hausa radio, Mr Matawalle said it will continue indefinitely.

“We must elongate the ban because our hope is for peace to return and for our people to be safe.

“We’ll continue to discuss with security agencies and until we are convinced by them, the ban will continue. The result of our interactions with the security agencies will determine when the ban will be lifted,” Mr. Màtawalle said.

Katsina State government has also shut down mobile telecommunications network in 13 local government areas of the state where bandits are considered to be active.

The areas, Funtua, Malumfashi, Bakori, Dutsin Ma, Faskari, Sabuwa, Dandume, Safana, Batsari Kankara, Danmusa, Jibia and Kurfi have all disconnected from mobile telecommunications services.
