The group’s initial targets numbered at least 20 within its first two weeks of operation, indicating a high level of expertise in ransomware attacks.

These attacks not only impacted the websites of various health-related entities but also resulted in the theft of substantial amounts of personally identifiable information (PII), potentially jeopardizing the safety and security of individuals.
