Health data exposed in an Adaptive Health data breach.
Williston’s Adaptive Health Integrations, a provider of healthcare software and billing services based in the US state of North Dakota, suffered a cyberattack that affected more than half a million customers. SecurityWeek reports that the attack, which took place last October, was reported to federal authorities earlier this month. In a press release, the company said the compromised data potentially included names, dates of birth, contact information and social security numbers, but not all patients were affected and not all of this data was compromised. not been exposed for each affected person. “Upon becoming aware of the issue, we contained the threat by disabling unauthorized access to our network and initiated a prompt and thorough investigation with the assistance of external cybersecurity professionals,” Adaptive Health said.
No better time to schedule that dental checkup.
The American Dental Association (ADA), the people behind those labels guaranteeing your toothpaste is doing its job, suffered a cyberattack on Friday, and the Black Basta ransomware gang took credit for it. The attack led the ADA to shut down parts of its network, disrupting the operation of various online services, telephones, email and chat systems, as well as the websites of affiliated state dental associations that depend on the ADA for online support. Although the ADA initially told Bleeping Computer that they were simply experiencing technical difficulties, an email sent to members explains, “On Friday, the ADA experienced a cybersecurity incident which caused a disruption of select systems including Aptify and ADA email, phone and web chat. Upon discovery, the ADA immediately responded by taking the affected systems offline and initiated an investigation into the nature and extent of the disruption… Federal law enforcement has been notified and we are cooperating with them in this investigation. active, so we ask for your understanding that we must limit the amount of details we can share at this time. Despite the ADA’s claims that there is no evidence that members’ data was compromised, Black Basta released 2.8 GB of data which they say they obtained in an attack. Screenshots show that the data includes W2 forms, NDAs, accounting spreadsheets, and ADA member information.
Royal Army recruitment system still down after data leak.
The British Royal Army’s Defense Recruitment System (DRS), powered by IT outsourcing company Capita, continues to experience technical difficulties more than a month after it was shut down in response to a cyber incident that may have be involved in stealing candidate data. Screenshots of data relating to approximately one hundred and twenty recruits have been posted on the dark web, but it is unclear if the system was hacked or if the threat actors merely obtained a screenshot or a printout of the information. An army spokesman told the Guardian: “Following the compromise of a small selection of recruit data, the army’s online recruitment services have been temporarily suspended pending a investigation. This investigation has now resulted in some functionality being restored and applications being processed. While the timing of the incident coinciding with the war in Ukraine leads some experts to question whether Russia could be behind the attack, Defense Ministry sources declined to comment on the possible perpetrators. Although the internal DRS network has been restored, the external online portal is still down, forcing the military to resort to using emergency systems to process candidate recruitment for the past five weeks. The Information Commissioner’s Office is aware of the incident, but said: “After researching and carefully reviewing the information provided, we have decided that no further action is required at this time.”
