L.A. County Phishing Expedition Reveals Private Information of 750,000 Victims
It is not just private companies like Quest and Yahoo! that became victims of cyber-attacks - and exposes the private information of their users.
According to a report from the LA Times:
"Confidential health data or personal information of more than 750,000 people may have been accessed in a cyberattack on Los Angeles County employees in May that led to charges this week against a Nigerian national, officials have disclosed.
Among the data potentially accessed were names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, financial information and medical records — including diagnoses and treatment history — of clients, patients or others who received services from county departments."
Health care related fraud and identity theft have been on the rise. So it is not surprising to see hackers target this type of data.
