Class action lawsuit filed against two Puerto Rican hospitals for alleged ransomware attacks

I’m glad I found an article entitled Class action lawsuit filed against two Puerto Rican hospitals for alleged ransomware attacks because I’m sure that people are sick and tired of companies like hospitals can freely put our data at risk. The problem in this case is that Ransomware was part of the problem, and I’m sure that someone in the company made a mistake and infected the network. Thats why I said that hospitals and other companies are putting our data at risk.

This whole problem can be talked about by telling employees about the dangers of clicking on links, reading email they’re not expecting, and the like. I know when we send email through our client, or through contact forms, company people don’t necessarily know its safe, and that is part of doing business.

The bad guys know this, and by spoofing resources like we’ve talked about time and time again, the employee is just trying to fulfill the request of what the email is saying, and not thinking about it.

Remember I talked about the Corona Virus? I did find those two emails back to back as I discussed after posting the article about it and they were similar. News bits are being put in to these messages, and it wouldn’t surprise me if these types of messages also go through contact forms of various companies.

By telling the hospitals and other companies that we’re not buying this “we’re sorry, but someone clicked on an email and infected us …” mentality, it’ll force companies to start the training process and talking to their employees about this important step in email security.

Did you see this? What did you think?
