  • Causa
    The microsoft windows security settings on a small number of impacted systems were incorrectly configured during the manufacturing process. this misconfiguration can lead to a windows security alert dialog being displayed when the system is switched from ivus to the ffr/ifr mode. if the user responds to the dialog by selecting "allow access," the device's network firewall settings will be modified, opening its network ports to potential unexpected communication from the hospital network to which the device may be connected.
  • Acción
    Philips Healthcare is arranging a service technician to visit customers to inspect the system configuration. In the interim, users may follow the workaround instructions provided in the customer letter to bypass changes to the firewall permissions that may impact the system.
