Alabama website breach revealed personal data of some state retirees

Mike Cason reports:

A Mobile woman who was helping her parents with their state health insurance coverage saw names, dependent’s names, dates of birth and Social Security numbers of other insurance program members on the system’s website.

Amanda Murdick said when she opened a portal for members on the website of the Public Education Employees’ Health Insurance Plan, personal identification information of hundreds of other retirees was accessible.


The types of information exposed “included members’ and dependents’ names, program ID numbers, birth dates and retirement dates. Social Security numbers were handwritten by some of the entries.” Information about health claims was reportedly not exposed.
