#infosec | University of Kentucky Defeats Month-Long Cyber-Attack

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The University of Kentucky (UK) has fought off a month-long cyber-attack that impacted UK Healthcare and caused a system-wide slowdown.

According to UK officials, the disruption was caused by cryptocurrency mining malware installed by threat actors on the UK network in February. The malware caused daily interruptions to everyday functions and triggered temporary failures of UK’s computer system.

Disruptions were chiefly felt at UK Healthcare, which operates UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky. Together, the hospitals serve more than 2 million patients. 

An investigation into the attack has found no evidence to suggest that patient or student data was compromised.  

University spokesperson Jay Blanton said: “Understanding that our review is ongoing, and based on the consultation of outside experts, we have no evidence to date that any personal health information or other sensitive data, such as personal student or employee data, has been downloaded or accessed.”

Eric Monday, UK’s executive vice president for finance and administration, said the attack appeared to have originated from outside the United States. He expressed the view that the attack had been carried out in an attempt to hijack the “vast processing capabilities” of the UK network to mine cryptocurrency. 

Following the attack, the university hired an independent computer forensic firm to help improve cybersecurity and installed CrowdStrike security software as a preventative measure against future threats. UK is believed to have spent more than $1.5m on ejecting the malware from its network and improving cybersecurity.

A major 3-hour reboot of the university’s IT systems, carried out without the students’ knowledge yesterday morning, is believed to have finally removed the lingering malware threat. 

In a message sent out to the university’s campus community on Monday morning, Blanton said: “A significant step in this procedure involved a short, planned network outage that took place earlier this morning, which we communicated overnight. Per the advice of our cybersecurity partners, it was necessary to limit the information provided in this initial communication. Now that the network has been restored and more aggressive security measures have been implemented, we can communicate with full transparency without risk of sacrificing the security of our systems.”

Kentucky Has Second Highest Child Abuse Rate in U.S.

The number of Kentucky children who died from abuse, as well as overall cases of abuse, is on the rise.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Children’s Bureau “Child Maltreatment 2015” report — released in 2017 — shows a jump in child abuse cases in both Kentucky and Indiana. The commonwealth had 18,897 victims (17,932 in the 2014 report), or about 19 out of every 1,000 children. Kentucky’s rate is more than double the national average.

“We’re hoping the significant increase in cases is the result of more people spotting and reporting abuse, which means we’re potentially preventing even more deaths and getting children and families the help they need,” said Erin Frazier, M.

KCH Developing Program to Help Kentucky Pediatricians Handle Cases of Child Abuse

Pediatricians routinely examine bangs, bruises and bone fractures — the standard acute injuries resulting from normal childhood activity.

 

But in rare cases, a pediatrician must also question whether a child’s injury was the consequence of an accident or a sign of physical abuse or maltreatment. When a caregiver’s explanation isn’t consistent with the medical evidence or a child informs a provider of mistreatment, the pediatrician grapples with either reporting their suspicion or remaining silent.

 

To help Kentucky pediatricians navigate these sensitive situations, Kentucky Children’s Hospital(KCH) hired its first pediatric specialist in child abuse pediatrics, a subspecialty of pediatrics concerned with examining medical evidence to investigate instances of child abuse or maltreatment.

Kentucky goes wire to wire as No. 1 in AP poll

Kentucky, the overall top seed in the NCAA Tournament, is the first team in 23 years to be No. 1 in The Associated Press’ college basketball poll from the preseason rankings to the final Top 25.

The Wildcats (34-0) are looking to become the first undefeated men’s national champion since Indiana in 1976. They were a unanimous No. 1 Monday for the seventh straight week and 11th overall this season. Kentucky received all 65 first-place votes from the national media panel to match Duke in 1992 as the last team to run the table at the top.

Villanova and Wisconsin, two of the other No.

Police connect officer-involved shooting in Maryland to triple homicide in Kentucky

CORBIN, Ky. (AP) – Authorities say a teenager killed in a shootout Saturday with police in Maryland prompted the search of his home over 500 miles away in Kentucky, where the bodies of his parents and younger sister were found.

Friends and relatives of 16-year-old Jason Hendrix were struggling to understand how the boy, a faithful churchgoer who was baptized just two months ago, could end up as the suspect in the execution-style slayings.

Corbin Police Chief David Campbell says Hendrix, a high school ROTC student and active church member, was angry at his parents for taking away his computer privileges.

Police believe the victims were gunned down late Wednesday afternoon in their home.
