However, but the attacks against pharmaceutical industry might continue.
Several hacker groups have now said they will no longer attack hospitals during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, reports Bleepingcomputer.
Leaders of the networks Maze, Doppelpaymer, Ryuk, Sodinokibi / Revil, Pwndlocker and Ako Ransomware have all promised not to carry out any attacks on the healthcare during the ongoing pandemic. However, they say they can still attack the pharmaceutical industry.
Whether these promises will be kept remains to be seen. Hacker groups have historically had a taste for attacking a particular hospital.
At the same time, several security organizations, such as Emsisoft and Coverware, have announced that they now offer their security tools free of charge to the healthcare system to protect them during the pandemic.
