  • Reason
    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," [as shown below), 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.
