Reports cite that of the 100 servers connected to AIIMS, Delhi (40 physical and 60 virtual), five physical servers were infiltrated by the hackers. However, data in the five servers were later successfully retrieved.

Delhi AIIMS faced a cyber attack on November 23 this year which led to a paralysis of its servers. A case of extortion and cyber terrorism was then registered by the IFSO unit of the Delhi Police.
