Health tech firm leading COVID-19 trials hit with ransomware

eResearch Technology, a company that sells software that is widely used in clinical trials, was hit by ransomware. This attack has resulted in the slowing of some clinical trials testing COVID-19 vaccines. Two of the main companies hit were IQVIA, who is helping manage AstraZeneca‘s vaccine trial as well as Bristol Myers Squibb which is heading a group of companies in developing a quick test for the virus.

It is still unclear as to who was behind this attack.
