ICS-CERT in collaboration with B. Braun Medical recommends that users take
defensive measures to minimize the risk of exploitation of this vulnerability.
Specifically, users should:
Minimize network exposure for all medical devices and/or systems, and
ensure that they are not accessible from the Internet.
Locate all medical devices and remote devices behind firewalls, and
isolate them from the business network.
When remote access is required, use secure methods, such as Virtual
Private Networks (VPNs), recognizing that VPNs may have vulnerabilities and
should be updated to the most current version available. Also recognize that
VPN is only as secure as the connected devices.
ICS-CERT also provides a section for security recommended practices on the
ICS-CERT web page at
