Three TheDarkOverlord incidents appear on HHS’s public breach tool

Quick note to point out that three of TheDarkOverlord’s victims have reported their breaches to HHS, although the numbers they report do not always match what had been claimed by TDO and previously reported in the media:

  • Midwest Orthopedic Pain and Spine reported that 29,153 patients (not 48,000) were affected;
  • Athens Orthopedic Clinic reported that 201,000 patients (not 397,000) were affected; and
  • Prosthetic & Orthotic Care, Inc. reported that 23,015 patients were affected which is very close to what TDO had claimed).

Oddly, perhaps, Athens Orthopedic Clinic reported the incident as “Unauthorized Access/Disclosure” as opposed to Hacking/IT Incident, which I think is the more appropriate classification for what happened and what the other two victims reported.

    Okay… He sent me the farmington database, which I encrypted and emailed off to the FBI. The password to that file is 123456780

      He sent the file to a number of people, it seems.

      Did you parse it to see how many unique patients were in there? TDO had told me 48k unique, but the CE reported about 29k.

    Oh I sent it to Tor Ekeland that file.. So… well.. I don’t think Tor would use the info.

      Why would you be sending out that file to Tor? The more people that have it, the greater the risk to the patients.

    Oh it appears I emailed it to you as well.. Well… I recall it would have to be converted to a fixed length or something. That file was whack

      I already had it.

    Witnesses… I looked it up in my pretend lawyer book. 😉

    I live in GA and know SO many families who are affected by this. The local paper and AOC are not being truly upfront with how serious the situation is. I passed onto my friends what I’ve learned from your research and they have taken measures to hopefully prevent further damage to their lives.

    Thank you for providing truth–seriously–it’s so rare these days.

      Your comment was submitted before I just posted two more articles related to AOC’s breach. You’ll probably want to read them.
