Algoma Public Health Hacked

APH. 50 years on.

Algoma Public Health was hit with a ransomware attack on the morning of Friday April 19 that blocked access to the APH servers.

Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Marlene Spruyt said that it appears no personal information or client information was taken. Their IT department was able to quickly disconnect the servers from the internet on Friday.

As they continue to get all their services back online, all appointments at all offices are cancelled for today. They apologize for the inconvenience.

The offices remain open and staff is available to assist you. Our email system has not been restored but phone lines are working.

More information will be released when it’s available.
