    DOJ indicts two Iranians for three-year, SamSam ransomware hacking spree that hit hospitals and other entities in 43 U.S. states

    "Two Iranian hackers charged Wednesday in a federal indictment were accused of attacking the computer networks of hospitals and other targets in 43 states, a broad criminal extortion campaign that walloped a heart hospital in Kansas and disrupted one of the nation’s largest diagnostic blood testing companies in North Carolina...

    Federal prosecutors said the three-year cybercrime spree caused tens of millions of dollars in damage from coast to coast. It marked the first U.S. indictment against foreign hackers engaged in a for-profit ransomware and extortion scheme...

    The two Iranians, Faramarz Shahi Savandi, 34, and Mohammad Mehdi Shah Mansouri, 27, remain at large, presumably in their homeland,..

    Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski sidestepped a question about whether Iran’s government sponsored the two, saying only that the indictment contains no such allegation...

    The three-year ransomware campaign hit at least 200 victims in the United States, collecting more than $6 million in extortion payments and causing more than $30 million in losses,..

    Officials said the hackers were intent on creating disruption and inflicting physical harm as much as in collecting ransom, deliberately targeting health-care facilities and hospitals..."

    https://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/po...ity/article222317480.html#storylink=mainstage

    The charges in the indictment are for:Conspiracy to Commit Fraud and Related Activity in Connection with Computers; Conspiracy to Commit Wire Fraud; Intentional Damage to a Protected Computer; Transmitting a Demand in Relation to Damaging a Protected Computer
