Florida phishing attack exposes data for 30000 Medicaid recipients

Post a Fraud Alert:

Large-scale medical hacks are horrible in themselves, but sometimes it’s the ease of the hacks that’s scary — and Florida knows this first-hand. The state’s Agency for Health Care Administration has warned that a phishing attack compromised data for as many as 30,000 Medicaid recipients. One of its staffers fell for a “malicious phishing email” on November 15th, giving hackers access not only to identifying info like names, addresses and Medicaid ID numbers, but also diagnoses and medical conditions. A would-be fraudster would theoretically have almost everything they could want.
