1 Million Texans Potentially Impacted By Dental Care Data Breach

CBS DFW reports:

More than a million Texans may have been impacted by a massive data breach involving a large dental care provider.

Jefferson Dental and Orthodontics, which has 72 offices across Texas, reported to the Texas Attorney General’s Office a data breach affecting up to 1,026,820 Texans.

The breach was posted on the state’s website on Thursday.

The breach is the largest reported to the Texas Attorney General since the new notification law went into effect in September.

The Jefferson Dental malware incident was reported to HHS and first reported on this site back in October, and then again in February when they issued an update. But Jefferson had reported “501” affected to HHS back in October, so this is the first that we are getting any real numbers on the scope of the breach.
