French MNH health insurance company hit by RansomExx ransomware

French health insurance company Mutuelle Nationale des Hospitaliers (MNH) has suffered a ransomware attack that has severely disrupted the company's operations. BleepingComputer has learned.

MNH is the first mutual insurance company in France to provide health insurance services, and plans focused on the health sector.

The company's website is used by members to generate insurance quotes or to manage services and benefits.

Since the attack, the mnh.fr website displays a notice stating that it has been affected by a cyberattack that started on February 5th. This attack has caused their websites and telephone platform to become unavailable.

"The MNH has been undergoing a cyber attack since Friday, February 5, 2021 . Computer systems have been disconnected for security reasons.

"Our websites (mnh.fr, members' area, corresponding and elected extranets) as well as our telephone platform (3031) are temporarily unavailable. The processing times for your requests are extended," Gérard Vuidepot, CEO of MNH, states in the notice on the MNH website.

Two days ago, an independent security researcher shared a Tor web page with BleepingComputer that acts as a ransom negotiation page for the MNH attack.
