Coveware & Emsisoft are partnering to offer healthcare organizations free ransomware response services to healthcare organizations amid the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

The services, according to the firm, will include:

  • Technical analysis of the ransomware.
  • Development of a decryption tool whenever possible.
  • As a last resort ransom negotiation, transaction handling and recovery assistance, including replacement of the decryption tool supplied by the criminals with a custom tool that will recover data faster and with less chance of data loss.

Hackers have continued to target healthcare organizations and associated ecosystem members during the coronavirus outbreak. Recent victims include the Illinois Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD) website, and the Durham, North Carolina, government systems.
