More details emerge on hacked patient databases up for sale
Yesterday, I reported that three unidentified patient databases had been put up for sale on the darknet on TheRealDeal market.
I was subsequently able to have a chat with TheDarkOverlord (the hacker/seller) about the hacks and the refusal of the victims to pay the extortion demands.
You can read more of what TheDarkOverlord shared with me on The Daily Dot.
I am still hoping that the Atlanta-area facility I suspect as being the source of the third database responds to my e-mail and phone messages, and will update when we either get a confirmation or a denial.

This is really one fouled up (sugar coating word) story. Were you actuallyv on the phone with this hacker?
