Wiper malware threat to the healthcare sector in US and Ukraine

417

Microsoft has issued a serious warning to companies serving the healthcare sector in the United States and Ukraine. And the alert is related to a wiper malware that has the potential to disrupt the IT infrastructure on an entire network.

John Riggi, the National Advisor for Cybersecurity at the American Hospital Association, said that the danger was currently lurking in the darkness and could hit its target soon.

Riggi mentioned a 2017 Wannacry Ransomware Attack on companies across the globe and said that such an attack is due to be launched by Russian hackers in the coming weeks and it can be much more disastrous than what it proved in the past.

Russia has started a hybrid war of attack on Ukraine on the ground, through the air, on water, and on the digital front and is leaving no stone unturned to win the battle.

Healthcare sector will be its primary target as it wants the Zelensky-led nation to knees within no time and surrender to its forces.

Russian hackers will also aim at the healthcare sector operating in the Biden-led nation as it is offering open support to Ukraine by sending funds, ammunition, and essentials to keep the military and civilians in Ukraine sustained.

If all these instances fail, then Putin might plan to take down Ukraine and its allies with Nuclear power and for that reason the President of the Russian Federation is always seen carrying a black-colored box with him that has the red button to launch nuclear bombs on western countries.
