Georgia hospital disrupted by computer virus

A medical center in Georgia (Lawrenceville and Duluth) has been infected with a computer virus since last week, causing it to ask ambulance companies to send new patients elsewhere.  Webroot tweeted the Atlanta Constitution story yesterday here.  The virus has the odd name of an “I.T. service interruption virus” and is said not to have any effect on patient records. 

There is no explanation yet as to the source of the infection or hack. 

The link is here.
