TheDarkOverlord

Patient info from Missouri clinic hacked by TheDarkOverlord remains online and available. Why?

In a post yesterday, I reported that protected health information and identity information of patients of Athens Orthopedic Clinic that had been leaked online by hackers remained available to anyone who knows where to look for it. Although it’s frustrating and understandably worrying to patients, I give AOC credit that they tried to find the leaks and plug them....

Athens Orthopedic Clinic patient data still exposed on leak site

DataBreaches.net discovered today that two copies of a paste (data dump) with over 860 AOC patients’ information is still available online if you know where to look for it.

Another one of TheDarkOverlord’s targets has issued a statement about the hack and theft of their patient information. DataBreaches.net had identified this entity and first reported on the hack on July 9. Somewhat disturbingly, and as we have seen in other cases with the same parameters, Prosthetic & Orthotic Care (P&O Care) does not appear...

Yesterday, it was the Athens Orthopedic Clinic in Georgia who issued a public statement (previous coverage). Today, it’s a group of clinics in Farmington, Missouri (previous coverage). Daily Journal Online reports: The medical group which includes...
