NY: Catholic Charities’ server hacked, possibly as early as 2015

Paul Nelson reports:

The personal information of about 4,600 past and present clients and several employees of Catholic Charities may have been exposed after a computer server in the Glens Falls office was hacked, according to Catholic Charities for the Diocese of Albany.

It sounds like the hacked server contained some medical information on the people served by the charity organization:

A technology firm called in to investigate the matter determined that information, including birth dates, dates of service and diagnosis codes and Social Security numbers, stored on the server may have been accessed.
