HHS issues alert on cyber attacks against Veeam software

Editor's Note

The Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Health Sector Cybersecurity Coordination Centers on May 10 issued an alert saying that cyber attacks against Veeam Backup & Replication software are on the rise, the American Hospital Association reports.

What makes the threat significant is that this software is used to protect and restore files and applications for Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint, which are used in healthcare organizations.

HHS recommends that all healthcare organizations “be aware of suspicious activity, keep systems up to date, and immediately patch any vulnerable systems.”
