A leading internet non-profit is offering US hospitals a free DNS security tool designed to help protect them from ransomware and other threats. The Center for Internet Security (CIS) announced on Friday that its Malicious Domain Blocking and Reporting Service (MDBR) would be made available at no cost to all non-public hospitals. The MDBR works by monitoring and blocking any outbound DNS traffic headed for suspicious domains.
