Snake Ransomware Security Update

22 May 2020

Terumo BCT is aware of the Snake Ransomware global cybersecurity threat. Internal teams performed technical product assessments to determine any potential risks. No Terumo BCT device or software products were identified as possessing critical risks specific to this type of ransomware threat. Ransomware attacks can best be prevented using organizational security controls. Terumo BCT recommends that customers take comprehensive measures to ensure the appropriate level of protection is in place within their environment such as:

  • Educating employees about possible attacks using social engineering methods and how to counteract them.
  • Secure configuration of email servers providing the proper level of security. These configurations include authentication mechanisms (SPF record, DKIM signature, DMARC settings) and scanning and filtering of contents of email messages and attachments.
  • Secure network configuration including the use of firewalls. Remote access should not be enabled for any internal systems unnecessarily. When remote access is necessary, use of VPN is recommended.
  • Timely updating of all 3rd-party software used within the organization.
  • Regular backup of data, especially data stored within on-premise file servers.
