It took just two minutes for hackers to breach a hospital's network and deploy ransomware on Franklin, Ind.-based Johnson Memorial Health, according to an Oct. 4 Daily Journal report.

About 15 minutes later, the health system's IT team found the attack and shut down the computer system, David Dunkle, MD, president and CEO of Johnson Memorial said.

The health system has not received any requests for ransom as of Oct. 4, according to the report. The system's IT team is preparing for the possibility of having to rebuild the entire system, Dr. Dunkle told the Daily Journal.
