Risk: Low
Canon Medical Systems has Cybersecurity protections in place that deem this a low risk (varies by product):

  • Whitelisting Anti-Virus software prevents the execution of such malware

  • Does not belong to a domain, therefore the attacker would have to know the IP address/host name of the system

  • Attacker must know the user name and password of the targeted computer

  • Windows Firewall is enabled preventing network shares using Ports 445, 137, 138, 139

Canon Medical Systems will continue to monitor the Trojan and any new information that is released.
