Long story short, hackers have stolen data from multiple companies and posted it online. Some of those companies are law firms and some of the data that has been posted is extremely sensitive – information relating to veterans’ PTSD claims, for example.
I’ve chosen a section of the document that doesn’t include any personal information for obvious reasons. The problem is that companies aren’t disclosing these incidents, so people don’t know that their names, addresses, social insurance numbers, medical history has fallen into the hands of cybercriminals and that they should set up credit monitoring, etc.
The hacker group Maze has re-listed the Texas law firm Baker Wotring on its site under the heading “full dump” and has now released the firm’s data. The data includes pain diaries from personal injury cases, fee agreements, HIPPA consent forms and more. Baker Wotring once again declined to return requests for comment. Maze had taken Baker Wotring’s name off its list late last week, leading to the conclusion that the firm paid the hacker’s ransom. The republishing of the firm name and the data dump suggest otherwise
