PharmaNet breach compromises personal information of 7,500 B.C. residents, says province

CBC News reports:

The personal information of approximately 7,500 British Columbians may have been compromised through the provincial government’s PharmaNet system, according to the Ministry of Health.

A letter from the ministry was sent last week to B.C residents affected by the breach. The letter says an “unknown/unauthorized person obtained and used a physician’s login to access PharmaNet.”

PharmaNet is the province-wide network that links all B.C. pharmacies to a central information system.

According to the letter, obtained by CBC News, personal information such as individual names, addresses, dates of births, and Care Card numbers have been viewed.

Hmmm.  They repeatedly refer to “viewing” data. Was there any evidence of data exfiltration?
