A big hello to all of our readers in India,
I wanted to let you know that the Medical details of over 120 million Indian patients have been leaked and made freely available on the Internet, according to a recent report published by Greenbone Sustainable Resilience, a German cybersecurity firm. What is even more worrying is that the number of data troves containing this sensitive data went up by a significant number in the Indian context a month after Greenbone’s initial report was published. The updated report also places Maharashtra at the top of the States affected by the leak.
The report revealed a widespread data leak of a massive number of records, including images of CT scans, X-rays, MRIs and even pictures of the patients.
I suggest that you contact your doctor or local hospital or Clinic and ask them to confirm in writing to you if your data was included in this leak and request that they provide you with identity protection services.
Thank you and talk to you soon.
