We have a Lurie Childrens update for you and this is not good

In a timeline based article which i finally got to read, we present you an update that just shouldn’t be.

Per one of the paragraphs, we learn what exactly was taken.

Per an online notice, the information that may have been compromised could include an individual’s: name, address, date of birth, dates of service, driver’s license number, email address, health claims information, health plan, health plan beneficiary number, medical condition or diagnosis, medical record number, medical treatment, prescription information, Social Security number and telephone number.

Do you really need all of this information to do your job? Maybe in some cases, the answer could be yes, like submitting claims for care where insurance may need an SSN for verification as an example. But do you need a driver’s license to do your job? Probably not. In this case, I’m saddned to report that most if not all could be needed in some way, but medical stuff is a lot different than your regular business which may collect some of the same info as above.

Lurie Children’s Hospital says nearly 800K patients’ data compromised in cyberattack is the article which you need to read.

It gives a timeline of restoration after the attack.

Glad to hear that things are now back up and they didn’t pay a ransom.

We did report that Rhysida supposedly took and sold the data, but we haven’t heard anything from them since. Maybe that’s a good thing.

The number of patients that could’ve been affected by this is around 800 thousand. That’s not something to sneeze at.
