DATA LEAKS IN THE MEDICAL INDUSTRY: THE PROBLEM CONTINUES | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

DATA LEAKS IN THE MEDICAL INDUSTRY: THE PROBLEM CONTINUES

SOURCE: WIZCASE.COM
After our previous report on database leaks from medical websites around the world, WizCase’s security team diligently continued their research. They discovered 3 additional unsecured medical databases with confidential information, including full names, passport numbers, birth dates, addresses, and phone numbers.

These databases were found in the context of performing research to help companies secure their data. They were left unencrypted and required no password to access the sensitive information within.

Every company and their hosting provider has been contacted with the security team’s findings. Our goal is to inform them of the leaks so they can secure the exposed servers, protecting their patients’ private information.

LATEST BREACHES FOUND (JANUARY 2020)
HX Wellness Private Limited (Aermed Online Pharmacy App) — India — Approx. 230,000 records exposed, leaking both patient and doctor information.
Mobile Health Pte Ltd (MaNaDr Mobile Health) — Singapore — Approx. 842,000 records discovered, exposing patient and doctor details.
Zaldivar Institute — Argentina — Approx. 8,600 records found, leaking ophthalmic patient data.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

YIKES! And just because this report doesn't contain the names of any health related corporations here in the US, is utterly no guarantee, that it is not happening here.
