On July 17th, Lorien Health Services announced through their website that a ransomware incident had occurred on June 6th. A team of cybersecurity experts was brought in to assist with incident response and to determine whether any personal information had been accessed. By June 10th, the team determined that personal data had indeed been accessed and could have included Social Security numbers, birthdays, addresses and health and treatment information. Lorien reported the incident to the FBI and notified all potentially impacted clients on June 16th. Although Lorien’s public announcement did not mention the specific ransomware family, the operators behind the Netwalker ransomware began publishing screenshots in mid-June and have posted a dump containing a small amount of the stolen data. Binary Defense analysts detected that Lorien Health information appeared on the Netwalker website on June 19th. Credit monitoring and identity protection services are being offered through ID services to those affected by the incident.
