Fondren Orthopedic Group notifies patients after malware incident destroyed patient records
Fondren Orthopedic Group in Texas is notifying patients of Dr. K. Matthew Warnock of a malware incident on November 21, 2019. The attack corrupted and permanently damaged some patients’ records, but there was no evidence that other any records were accessed and copied or exfiltrated.
According to their notice to HHS, they are notifying 30,049 patients. I hope that’s not the number of patients whose records were destroyed. They make no mention of any backups in their notice. DataBreaches.net attempted to email the office through their site contact form, but it demands that you complete a captcha that doesn’t appear anywhere on the page.
