    "FUJIFILM shuts down network after suspected ransomware attack

    FujiFilm is investigating a ransomware attack and has shut down portions of its network to prevent the attack's spread.

    While FUJIFILM has not stated what ransomware group is responsible for the attack, Advanced Intel CEO Vitali Kremez has told BleepingComputer that FUJIFILM was infected with the Qbot trojan last month...'A network infection attributed to QBot automatically results in risks associated with future ransomware attacks.'..."

    That's a big one alright. Of all agencies you would think they would have prioritized isolating and securing particular networks in a tightly wound relay limited from outside contact. Highly sophisticated don't seem to apply anymore to such agencies but certainly does to those actors who have the know how and brute to expose how open certain systems are to external infiltration.

    Seems that every day a new volley of ransomware landings are literally taking down systems with reckless abandon and no end in sight.
    What first comes to mind is, has all those places/businesses become so irresponsibly complacent to the safeguard of their systems security, or just taking their chances (Russian roulette) or are their security systems either obsolete or practically non existent to the challenges which are sweeping across every vulnerable hole available to the perpetrators.

    Wake up call that if service agencies, ALL OF THEM-Responsible for clients/patients important information isn't given the priority of protection deserved and treated with priority on THEIR machine systems/networks, it's only fair, right, and duty to return a compensation for that irresponsibility. Mistakes are one matter, ignoring warnings another.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. One can foresee if this trend continues to escalate, that a windfall proposal for top expert system coders to derive and fashion an entirely new makeup of operational code, completely separate and independent, (immune from disruption with current code standards) is in order for their business and systems to run within a isolated confined type of network, free from the obstructions taking current systems by storm. How genuinely cost worthy that may be is anyone's guess but the present status quo of systems code is obviously terribly vulnerable.
