HHS Alerts Health Sector to 14 New Cyber Vulnerabilities

The health care sector should swiftly implement patches or mitigations to address 14 new cyber vulnerabilities identified by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency in May, the Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Sector Cybersecurity Coordination Center (HC3) advised this week. The vulnerabilities affect Baxter Welch Allyn, Microsoft, Google/Android, Apple, Mozilla, Cisco, SAP, Adobe, Fortinet and Atlassian. HC3 also released an advisory recommending an update to systems following the disclosure of a critical remote code execution vulnerability in Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP). Mitigation efforts have also been advised for Snowflake users after the platform recently detected increases in cyber threats targeting certain customer accounts, according to HC3.
