French hospitals hit by ransomware cyberattacks

A French hospital group near the city of Lyon has become the latest victim of a wave of ransomware attacks. The IT systems at three hospitals were affected and some operations had to be cancelled as a result. The hack is the most recent in a series of cyberattacks across the sector. Meanwhile, France's cybersecurity agency has revealed that a weakness in software from the company Centreon led to the defences of several French companies being breached over a period of three years.
