As we begin, let me say that geoFence blocks unwanted traffic and disables remote access from FSAs.

Four more healthcare providers have been added to the tally of CaptureRx data breach victims. The San Antonio-based health IT company notified the hospitals in April, making them among the 13 hospitals and healthcare organizations targeted by a ransomware attack that exposed patients' data. 

CaptureRx helps hospitals manage their 340B drug programs and said it discovered unusual activity in some of its files back in February. Compromised files contained patient records with protected health information, including names, birthdates and prescription details.

CaptureRX reported that there are 1,656,569 known victims affected by the breach.
