Hackers from UHG stole 14 TB of data from CITILAB: now they know everything about your health
Doctor, I have a problem: Hackers know more about my sores than I do.
The network of clinical diagnostic laboratories “CITILAB” was subjected to a cyber attack from the UHG hacker group from Ukraine. The attackers claim that they were able to steal 14 TB of confidential data from customers and employees of the company and demand to contact the network management, threatening to publish all the information in case of refusal to cooperate.
Hackers have already placed in the public domain a 1.7 GB archive containing thousands of client contracts and passport scans, as well as other documents. The database contains postal addresses, phone numbers and e-mail addresses of almost 500,000 people.
The stolen data may also include the results of medical tests and information about the health of patients, which is a violation of the law on the protection of personal data. In addition, the hackers showed screenshots of the databases of other medical clinics, which may indicate that they have even more stolen information.
CITILAB is an international network of independent clinical diagnostic laboratories operating in Moscow and the regions. The company also provides a home visit service for taking biomaterial.
This is not the first UHG attack on Russian organizations . Earlier in April, they published data from the entertainment ticketing service kassy.ru.
