PTS Case

A ransomware called pwnpiper has been linked to a set of nine vulnerabilities in hospitals throughout North America. The ransomware is attacking the PTS aka Pneumatic tube systems in hospitals. PTS are internal logistics and transport solutions, used to transport blood samples to laboratories safely. If pwnpiper is successful it could result in patient information leakage and data manipulation.
