The Department of Health and Human Services' Health Sector Cybersecurity Coordinator Center warned the healthcare sector about a cybercrime group targeting the industry.
In a Jan. 6 alert, the department detailed that financially-motivated cybercrime group Mespinoza is increasing its capabilities to target more frequently.
The group has developed its own ransomware variant, known as PYSA, that can encrypt victims' files.
