TheDarkOverlord Honors Threat, Exposes 180,000 Patient Records
More than 3,400 patient records were released from New York City-based Aesthetic Dentistry, 34,100 from California’s OC Gastocare and 142,000 Tampa Bay Surgery Center.
TDO used a Twitter account to post a link to a site that allows any user to download the patient databases from these organizations. The hacker has a history of using Twitter to shame the organizations he or she has breached.
The hacker warned Aesthetic Dentistry and OC Gastrocare in the fall on Twitter that he or she was in possession of the data as a means to extort these organizations into paying to keep the data private.
