Authorities were yesterday investigating after national data network at a major Bahrain hospital crashed, it has emerged.

After the digital system crash, staff at the BDF Hospital apparently had to resort to manual administrative procedures for all processes, including admissions at the emergency department and even surgeries.

The King Hamad University Hospital (KHUH), the government hospital managed by the BDF, was also taking proactive measures to protect their network.

The hospital on Wednesday night sent out internal emails to staff members alerting them of the crisis.

In an “urgent and critical” warning it also pointed out “several” Bahraini government organisations connected to the government data network were under “heavy and serious” attacks with “computer viruses and Ransomwares”.

“These attacks, if successful, will lead to serious breach of information, loss of business continuity, systems shutdowns and outages, malicious damage or exposure of critical citizen and expat information,” said the communication.

The message urged staff to change passwords of emails to stronger ones, not to share it with anyone inside or outside the hospital, not to open any attachments unless sure of the source, not to plug in external devices including USBs or hard discs into hospital systems, not to use personal computers without necessary precaution and finally, to report any security issues to the ICT (information and communication technology) desk immediately.

A strict ban has also been placed temporarily on HOPE, the e-services software at KHUH, being connected to any outside sources, until the issue is resolved.
