WIRED
Summary
Change Healthcare, a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group, is grappling with a significant cybersecurity issue following a ransomware attack by a group known as AlphV in February, which has led to the claimed sale of sensitive medical and financial records by another cybercriminal gang, RansomHub. The stolen data reportedly includes medical and dental records, insurance details, and personal information such as Social Security numbers and email addresses. This breach, which initially disrupted the company's claims-payment operations, has already cost Change Healthcare $872 million in response efforts as of March 31. This incident has caught the attention of lawmakers and regulators, increasing pressure on Change Healthcare to bolster its cybersecurity measures and prevent future breaches.
