Hackers attack Indian healthcare website, steal 6.8 million records

IANS reports:

New Delhi: In a startling revelation, US-based cyber security firm FireEye said on Thursday that hackers broke into a leading India-based healthcare website, stealing 68 lakh records containing patient and doctor information.

Without naming the website, FireEye said cyber criminals — mostly China-based — are directly selling data stolen from healthcare organisations and web portals globally including in India in the underground markets.

“In February, a bad actor that goes by the name “fallensky519″ stole 6,800,000 records associated with an India-based healthcare website that contains patient information and personally identifiable information (PII), doctor information and PII and credentials,” FireEye said in its report shared with IANS.
