Leaked video exposes how patient data in Hong Kong public hospitals can be accessed by any user without needing a password

Sum Lok-kei and Elizabeth Cheung report:

Patient data at Hong Kong’s public hospitals can be accessed by any user with no need for a password, a leaked video shown to the Post and verified by multiple hospital sources has revealed.

Software developer Wong Ho-wa warned the program used in public accident and emergency (A&E) wards called AEIS carried a huge risk and was built with an “intentional back door”, allowing anyone to access patients’ files while leaving no trace.
