Breast & Skeletal Products Cybersecurity
Ransomware Activity Targeting the Healthcare and Public Health Sector - October 30, 2020
Hologic is closely monitoring the situation of malware/ransomware named Ryuk, Conti, and others targeting the healthcare and public health sector. The most common method of ransomware distribution is through spam or phishing emails.
Hologic Breast and Skeletal products do not contain email clients and are significantly hardened to limit exploitation from this and other malware by disabling many of the services that malware can use to propagate across a network.
We recommend all customers to continue following cybersecurity best practices, including the use of firewalls, restricting external internet access, running updated anti-virus software, and keeping validated security patches up to date.
