New Delhi: As its server remained out of order for the sixth consecutive day, hackers have allegedly demanded an estimated Rs 200 crore in cryptocurrency from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi.
Data of around 3-4 crore patients could have been compromised due to the breach detected Wednesday morning, PTI reported quoting official sources as saying.
The report quoting the sources further said that patient care services in emergency, outpatient, inpatient and laboratory wings are being managed manually as the server remained down.
