The Delhi Police has written a letter to the Centre Bureau of Investigation (CBI) seeking details on Chinese hackers through Interpol, in the latest development in connection with the AIIMS server hacking case. The Delhi Police have sought information about the IP address being used by the hackers.
The cyber attack on the servers of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) was carried out in China. They are based in Hong Kong and Henan. The hackers had targeted five servers of AIIMS out of 100. The data from these five servers have been retrieved now, the hospital said.
As per sources. “To contact Interpol we have to write to the CBI. We need information from Interpol in the case. CBI is the nodal agency to reach out to them. The hackers sent emails using certain IP addresses, we need details about those IP addresses. We want to know whether these IP addresses were used by any firm or individual.”
Meanwhile, the hospital has also started functioning partially in online mode in some departments. The OPD appointment has been started through online mode to some extent, said a hospital source on Wednesday.
Some online and offline new and follow-up registrations have started being made at the new Rajkumari Amrita Kaur (RAK) OPD.
On November 23, the AIIMS servers were hacked for the first time. A case of extortion and cyber terrorism was registered by the Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Operations (IFSO) unit of the Delhi Police two days later.
