Data breach at Blue Springs Family Care

Missouri-based health care provider Blue Springs Family Care has disclosed a ransomware attack resulting from a data breach.

From the article:

“According to a letter publicly posted by the company, the perpetrators potentially had access to a variety of information, including patients’ full names, home addresses, birth dates, Social Security numbers, account numbers, driver’s license numbers, medical diagnoses, and disability codes.”

Recommendation:  If you have visited this medical group for any reason I would make sure your credit monitoring subscription is up to date.  With the social security number and birthday information the thieves will be able to open lines of credit in your name.
