The Grid is not the only target – Pharmacies scramble to serve sick customers as ‘nation-state’ blamed for ongoing cyberattack outage

Change Healthcare cyberattack being blamed on ‘suspected nation-state'

Pharmacies

ENB Pub Note: I have been talking about the poor energy policies of this administration for years. Their opening the US Grid to cyber attacks is well-documented and when combined with the open border with the Tens of Thousands of Chinese military-aged men coming across the border, we know we are just waiting for a disaster of biblical proportions. So when the second major Chinese spy balloon showed up, and AT&T had a national cyber attack, this medical breakdown happened a few days later. Is it just a coincidence? In this age of conspiracy theories coming true, are they really conspiracy theories?  Here are some related Stories:


From Fox Business: 

American pharmacies are still grappling with difficulties providing prescriptions on Friday following a cyberattack against one of the nation’s largest health care technology companies that is now being blamed on a “suspected nation-state associated cyber security threat actor.”

Tricare, the military health care program, says on its website that “[m]ilitary clinics and hospitals will provide outpatient prescriptions through a manual procedure” until the ongoing cyberattack against Change Healthcare “is resolved.”

Change Healthcare, a company that handles orders and patient payments throughout the U.S., first noticed the “cyber security issue” affecting its networks on Wednesday morning on the East Coast.

The company is a division of UnitedHealth Group, which wrote in an SEC filing that it has “identified a suspected nation-state associated cyber security threat actor” that has “gained access to some of the Change Healthcare information technology systems.”

The filing did not identify the alleged country involved. FOX Business has reached out to the White House for comment.

On its website Friday morning, Change Healthcare said it is “experiencing a cyber security issue, and our experts are working to address the matter.”

“Once we became aware of the outside threat, in the interest of protecting our partners and patients, we took immediate action to disconnect our systems to prevent further impact,” the company continued. “At this time, we believe the issue is specific to Change Healthcare and all other systems across UnitedHealth Group are operational.”

Pharmacies across the country put out notices Wednesday that the attack on Change Healthcare was disrupting their ability to process patients’ orders.

“This is impacting all military pharmacies worldwide and some retail pharmacies nationally,” Tricare said.

“Military pharmacies will give priority to urgent prescriptions followed by routine prescriptions. Each military hospital and clinic will continue to offer pharmacy operations based on their local manning and resources,” it added. “Please be patient while pharmacies take longer than usual to safely fill prescription needs.”

A spokesperson for pharmacy chain CVS told FOX Business on Wednesday that the company is aware of the outages but that there is “no indication that CVS Health’s systems have been compromised.”

“We’re continuing to fill prescriptions, but in certain cases, we are not able to process insurance claims, which our business continuity plan is addressing to ensure patients continue to have access to their medications,” the spokesperson added.

Kyle Reyes: I’ve been urging Americans to wake up and warning about what we are facing – here’s more proof. REPOST for exposure!!

“570 leaked documents expose a Chinese state backed hacking group and show China is targeting critical US infrastructure.

The FBI has reported Chinese hacking power outnumbers the US 50 to 1.

Instead of devoting resources to closing the gap, Democrats spend resources on woke pro-racism DEI training in the FBI and military and welfare for illegal immigrants.

Also, the number of illegal immigrants from China, many single military aged men, at the border for FY 2023 and FY 2024 is up 1,658% over 2021 and 2022.”
