Criminal Gang Provides Government With Code To Break HSE Hack

Investigations will continue today to assess if a decryption key will unlock HSE data stolen during a ransomware attack.

A criminal gang gave it to Irish authorities yesterday, and assessments are underway to establish if it's safe to use on the HSE’s computer systems.

The government says it hasn't paid a ransom to get the key, while thousands of hospital appointments continue to be cancelled.
