OTTAWA – Ottawa Hospital says it was the subject of a cyber attack in the last week.

The hospital issued a statement Saturday saying four of the hospital’s 9,800 computers faced a hacker attempt, but no patient information was affected.

The hospital says malware locked down the files and the hospital wiped its drives.

The hospital says it’s confident its safeguards are appropriate.
