8. LifeBridge Health

Number Of Records Exposed: 538,000

LifeBridge Health was hit by a malware attack that potentially exposed the private information of patients for more than a year.

Officials said they discovered the breach in March, with a malware infection on its server that hosted LifeBridge Potomac Professional’s EHR (electronic health records) and LifeBridge Health’s patient registration and billing systems.

However, the investigation that followed found the hackers first gained access to the EHR and servers in September 2016. And the breached data included demographic information, dates of birth, medical history, clinical and treatment information, insurance data, and – in the case of some patients – Social Security numbers.

LifeBridge said they sent letters to patients and established a call center to answer questions.
