  • The bad actors who hacked the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) server seek a crypto ransom.
  • Delhi Police have registered a case of extortion and cyberterrorism.
  • Previously, an Indian enforcement team froze the BTC balances of a crybercriminal.

According to a local report, the hackers who took down the internet server of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) have demanded over $24 million worth of cryptocurrencies in ransom.

Furthermore, the report noted that the Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Operations (IFSO) unit of the Delhi Police registered a case of extortion and cyberterrorism three days back.

Today marks the sixth consecutive day since the hospital server went out due to the cyber attack. While the medical institution awaits the server to come back to life, patient records in emergency and laboratory wings are being managed manually.

Nonetheless, the AIIMS network is undergoing a sanitization process, comprising installing antivirus solutions across 5,000 computers.

Earlier this month, the Indian directorate of enforcement (ED) seized over $2.5 million worth of Bitcoin connected to the fraudulent gaming called E-nuggets. The Indian authority searched the Binance user’s wallet connected to the mobile gaming application, freezing 150.22 Bitcoin under its prevention of money laundering act, 2002.

E-nuggets used to be a mobile gaming app offering users high deposit commissions with the option to withdraw earned rewards. However, according to reports, its founder Aamir Khan later disabled the withdrawal function after hitting a considerable deposit. Khan is currently in police custody alongside four others.

In September, the regulator froze the account balances of various Chinese-controlled entities in connection with a probe into the app-based token HPZ. The withheld amount was Rs. 9.82 crores, equivalent to $1,218,529.39.
