Ohio health system hit by hackers, thousands of health records stolen
A hacker has stolen over 100,000 internal documents, including many with personal health information on patients, from an Ohio-based health system.
A Ukrainian hacker claimed on Twitter to have carried out the attack and included a screenshot of a couple dozen names, addresses, dates of birth, and diagnoses.
The hacker uploaded upwards of 156GB of data to a Google Drive, which we’re not linking to, from the Central Ohio Urology Group based in Gahanna, Ohio. The health group has 24 locations, according to its website, and is owned by Mount Carmel Health System. It’s said to be the second-largest healthcare system in the state.
