The US healthcare hacking spree continues as a group of hackers reportedly leaked a massive amount of sensitive patient data and internal documents. The data dump, which reportedly consists of over 100,000 stolen files, includes names, addresses, phone numbers and date of birth.
Over 150 GB of data from the Central Ohio Urology Group was leaked on Twitter by suspected Ukrainian-linked hackers using the pseudonym Pravvy Sector, according to reports. The leaked data also allegedly includes information on the kind of treatments patients received, such as renal ultrasound and sperm count. Several files also revealed the names of the insurance companies that patients were registered with.
Israeli data mining firm Hacked-DB, which is reportedly investigating the breach, told HackRead: “This is the Hacking Team sort of data breach, so it is huge and it will take a while to come up with complete results.”
