    Data for nearly 12 million Quest Diagnostics patients may have been exposed Today, 02

    Unsure if this will affect PRIVATE MD LABS patients, etc..


    About 11.9 million Quest Diagnostics patients may have had their financial, medical and other personal information exposed in a data breach, the company said Monday.
    In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Quest said a billing collections vendor, American Medical Collection Agency, notified it last month of potential unauthorized activity on AMCA’s web payment page. AMCA provides billing collections services to Optum360, which is a Quest contractor. An unauthorized user had access to the system between Aug. 1, 2018, and March 30, 2019, Quest said.


    The system contained sensitive data, including credit card numbers, bank account information, medical information and Social Security numbers, Quest said. Lab results were not provided to AMCA and were not exposed in the breach. AMCA thinks 11.9 million Quest patients were affected as of May 31, 2019, Quest said.

    it is a weird idea that we have some cross between Tony Soprano and Bill Gates..
    That is both the blessing and curse of the Cloud .

    you bring every things on one computer and make that computer secure..... however you also make a more profitable targets.

    Add to it that the cloud, a race to the bottom for cost, however that causes less security ( after all the CEO paycheck is more important then the CIO's)
    So picture the data from potential hundreds of companies are all available by hacking one cloud..

    there is this idea that a cloud is only reachable by the company that rents it.... but root password can go any where .
    they try to break it up, but there is always a root password
