    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) suffered a cyber attack on Sunday night designed to slow the departments systems and circulate false information about the coronavirus.

    The incident, described by three unnamed sources and reported exclusively by Bloomberg, did not majorly impact the department systems but did result in some misinformation being spread.

    The attack involved overloading the HHS servers with millions of hits over several hours.
