Microsoft is Alerting Hospitals Vulnerable to Ransomware Attacks

Microsoft has started to send targeted notifications to dozens of hospitals about vulnerable public-facing VPN devices and gateways located on their network.

As part of their tracking of various groups behind human-operated ransomware attacks, Microsoft has seen one of the operations known as REvil (Sodinokibi) targeting vulnerabilities in VPN devices and gateway appliances to breach a network.

Pulse VPN devices have been known to be targeted by threat actors, with this vulnerability thought to be behind the Travelex ransomware attack by REvil.
