Murfreesboro Medical Clinic & SurgiCenter (MMC) canceled all appointments for the third straight day on Wednesday after falling victim to a “sophisticated criminal cyberattack.”
The medical center announced they fell victim to a cyberattack on April 22 and immediately initiated an emergency shutdown to prevent the attack’s spread.
Since then, the clinic says they have been working with law enforcement and third-party experts to identify the source of the attack.
Due to the quick detection by technology experts, the clinic believes they have been able to limit the impact of the cyberattack. Still, it remains unclear how much, if any, patient data was stolen.
