Are you a client of The Hospital Group? If your data’s recently been breached, you might be entitled to compensation.
The Hospital Group, also known as Transform Hospital Group, were targeted in a ransomware attack in December.
A hacker group called REvil have claimed on a darknet webpage to have stolen patients’ personal data from the cosmetic surgery group, including “intimate photos of customers” before and after their surgery.
REvil have claimed to have gotten hold of more than 900 gigabytes of patient photographs, which they’ve described as “not a completely pleasant sight.”
While Transform Hospital Group have confirmed that no payment card details have been stolen, it’s not yet known how many customers have been affected by the breach.
The surgery have emailed all their customers about the attack and are “writing separately to anyone who could be affected by this.” They’ve also taken action to safeguard their systems and are carrying out a full investigation of the attack.
