Abbott is proactively monitoring developments related to the recently identified vulnerabilities in third-party open-source networking software components (TCP/IP stacks), commonly referred to as "Amnesia:33". According to published reports, including the CISA Alert1, the vulnerabilities in the software that supports network connectivity could allow unauthorized access, loss of system availability or exposure of sensitive information.

Abbott products are not impacted by this advisory. Abbott's product security and quality teams will continue to monitor this situation and assess these vulnerabilities for potential impact as updates are made. We will update this advisory if new information warrants additional communication.
