Dental practices across the country found themselves locked out of their patient files after a hacker group infected a pair of software providers with REvil, or Sodinokibi, ransomware.

The two companies, The Digital Dental Record and PerCSoft, which created DDS safe to provide medical records retention and backup services to dental offices, ponied up the ransom for a decryptor that they have passed on to the practices affected, according to a report in ZDNet.

REvil, or Sodinokibi, which Fidelis Security Threat Research Team Senior Analyst Aamil Karimi wrote is “becoming increasingly popular” with a 12.5 percent ransomware market share and shows similarities to GandCrab, is the same ransomware used in recent attacks on 22 local and county government agencies in Texas.
