An elderly care facility has suffered a data breach and subsequent data leak after being targeted by the Qilin ransomware group. The group managed to gain unauthorized access to the facility’s network and stole confidential information, which they then leaked online. The stolen data includes personally identifiable information of staff. The Qilin ransomware group, also known as UNC 1878, is believed to be based in China and has been active since at least 2019.
