Patient Data Allegedly Stolen in Ransomware Attack on Colorado Eyewear Firm | #ransomware | #cybercrime

The online site databreaches.net is reporting on recent LockBit ransomware attack staged against Panorama Eyecare.

A claim to have collected nearly 800 GB of data from four of the Panorama Eyecare’s clients was added to LockBit’s leak site.

The effected companies are:

According to its website, Panorama Eyecare “is your physician-led management service organization so you no longer have to worry about day-to-day businesses operations and can focus on what you care about most.”

The Fort Collins, CO, business offers an array of practice management services, from marketing to human resources to finances.

DataBreaches reports that screencaps, posted by LockBit as proof of its claims, showed patient information. Of the four companies listed to have been involved in the data breach, DataBreaches said it did not spot patient data from either Cheyenne Eye Clinic & Surgery Center or 2020 Vision Center. However, a filed titled “CEC” was visible in a folder the hackers professed to have accessed.

DataBreaches says it reached out for comment from the involved businesses to, as yet, no avail.

From the individual behind the site:

“I’m not a security professional. I’m a licensed health care professional who is passionate about protecting privacy. I hope that exposing the scope and seriousness of breaches – large and small – will help inform policymaking and decisions about allocating resources to data security.

“My background as a researcher and academic before turning clinician helps explain my involvement in research on breaches. My background as a mental health professional may help explain my interest and curiosity about those who hack.”
