Johns Hopkins University, a prestigious institution based in Baltimore, alongside its renowned health system, reported a significant cybersecurity incident impacting its operations. The attack exploited a vulnerability in MOVEit, a widely-used software for secure data transfer. The breach resulted in the possible theft of sensitive personal and financial information, including health billing records belonging to the university and its health system's networks. This incident is part of a larger global cyberattack attributed to the Russian ransomware gang, Clop, which targeted numerous organizations, including federal and state agencies, private companies, and other educational institutions. Clop's activities have raised concerns over the security of critical data and the effectiveness of existing cybersecurity measures against sophisticated ransomware attacks.
