GandCrab ransomware variant targeting legacy systems: What you need to know

The latest variant of the GandCrab ransomware is targeting older Windows PCs that are no longer supported by Microsoft. This version includes the stolen National Security Agency (NSA) exploit EternalBlue, which was also used in the WannaCry and Petya attacks. The ransomware is being spread through spam emails, fake crack sites, and malicious WordPress sites. With about 15% of healthcare organizations operating on outdated systems, the healthcare sector could be vulnerable to this ransomware. It is important for organizations to patch vulnerabilities and implement solid web security measures to protect against GandCrab. Upgrading legacy systems is the most effective option, but may be costly for many healthcare organizations.
