Sinai Health System notifies 11,350 patients after phishing incident

Ally Marotti reports:

At least two employees at Sinai Health System had their email accounts compromised in a phishing incident, potentially affecting the information of 11,350 people.

The seven-member hospital system said in a statement Thursday that it cannot confirm whether any patient information in the email accounts was viewed. However, there is a low risk that the information was exposed, the hospital system said.

Chicago-based Sinai, which serves the West and Southwest sides, discovered the phishing attack hours after it occurred Oct. 2 and took immediate action, the statement said.
