Deanna Weniger reports:

An infertility clinic in Woodbury announced Friday that it was the target of a malware attack in December that may have exposed the personal information of its clients.

Reproductive Medicine and Infertility Associates said in a press release that the malware was discovered Dec. 5. The company hired computer forensics experts, who removed the malware and sought to determine how the incident occurred and if information had been accessed.

“At this time there is no evidence of any attempted or actual misuse of anyone’s information as a result of this incident,” the release said.

Exposed data included personal information, such as names, addresses, dates of birth, health insurance information, treatment information and, for donors only, Social Security numbers.
