Microsoft has started notifying hospitals vulnerable to known threats, the company announced in a blog post earlier this week. Hospitals and other healthcare institutions around the world are being pushed to their limits thanks to the coronavirus outbreak, and hackers are using it as an opportunity to compromise their networks, steal money and data, and wreak havoc in the process. Some of the vulnerabilities are relatively known, at least to Microsoft. The company knows that REvil targets vulnerabilities in VPN devices and gateway appliances to spread the Sodinokibi ransomware, for example. It is now taking a proactive stance in hopes of helping hospitals protect themselves during this time of crisis.
