When the WannaCry ransomware infected as many as 200,000 Windows systems, it wasn't just administrative PCs that were hacked. Medical devices were affected too, according to an article on the Forbes website.
Forbes obtained an image of an infected Bayer Medrad device in a U.S. hospital. It was not known which healthcare facility was affected, or which Bayer model was hacked.
A Bayer spokesperson confirmed it had received two reports from customers in the U.S. with devices hit by the ransomware, but would not say which specific products were affected.
"If a hospital's network is compromised, this may affect Bayer's Windows-based devices connected to that network," the spokesperson said.
