VisualSonics Update on WannaCry Ransomware Attack
Dear VisualSonics customer,
FUJIFILM VisualSonics Inc. ("VisualSonics") is aware of the recent global attack of the WannaCry ransomware worm and has diligently evaluated the potential impact on its ultrasound systems. After a thorough investigation, VisualSonics has determined that the Windows operating system underlying the VevoMD clinical imaging system contains a factory configured firewall that protects the system from the WannaCry ransomware worm.
VisualSonics is committed to providing the best in class services to its customers. Regardless of this exploit’s ineffectiveness on the Vevo MD imaging system, to ensure that VisualSonics’ customers can continue to rely on its products, VisualSonics will be developing a patch for the Microsoft vulnerability.
VisualSonics has additionally determined that the following pre-clinical products could be affected by the WannaCry ransomware worm and is in the process of developing a patch to correct the Microsoft operating system vulnerability. VisualSonics will notify customers when the patch is available.
Recommended Preventive Action for VisualSonics pre-clinical products:
Please take this opportunity to protect your saved data by backing it up to an offline location, and remove your imaging system from the network until the provided patch can be installed.
