Patient info breached after DeKalb hospital website hacked

2014/04/30

WANE 15 Fort Wayne - (Indiana) DeKalb Health notified 17 patients after a third party firm's server used to operate the hospital's Web site was hacked in February, allowing access to their personal information and credit card numbers. Investigators also stated that an additional database containing information on 24 patients, along with approximately 1,320 nursery babies may have been created by hackers, as well as a fake Web site which appeared as a donation page for the DeKalb Health Foundation in order to send fake phishing emails.
