vinusha-Hacking which started off as a curiosity-driven system break-in attacks are rapidly increasing. Today most of the attacks are financially driven. Health Care industry is the most common target as most of them use the outdated and unsupported software and outdated operating systems. According to protenus breach barometer, in the year 2018 alone almost 503 breaches are reported compromising almost 15 million patient records [1]. The other drawback of the health sector attacks is most of them fail to report attacks within 60 days according to the HIPAA standards.

American Medical Collection Agency data breach is one of the top 10 data breaches notified in the year 2019. Agency was hacked for 8 months between August 1, 2018 and March 30, 2019 and came into light in June of that year. Quest announced that the unauthorized party had access to the AMCA system and almost 12 Million records which were sent to AMCA for review has been compromised. Later that year HIPAA released an article that almost 21 companies are affected by this data breach. Six covered entities are majorly affected by this breach. Almost 25 million records are compromised out of which 12 million patient records from Quest, 7.7 million records from Lab Corp, 2.2M patients records of clinical pathology are majorly affected. Later that year, 7 more entities were added to the list. Most of the hacked systems consisted of personal and financial data including social security numbers and personal information. Post this attack, AMCA has filed for bankruptcy, while the entities like Quest and Lab Corp are facing numerous investigations and Lawsuits [2].

Phishing is the hacking involved in obtaining the access to the system. According to the agency several employees fell victim to the phishing attack in august 2018. The systems were soon recovered after the investigation

rohith-Hacking Attacks

The activity performed by hackers to gain unauthorized access to computer systems or networks by exploiting security vulnerabilities for personal use is called as hacking. Hackers are usually classified into three types, 1. Black hat hackers, 2. White hat hackers and 3. Grey hat hackers. White hat hackers are also called ethical as they do on purpose to identify and fix the security vulnerabilities. Black hat hackers do it only to exploit and gain access to abuse the systems and networks. Grey hat hackers between white and black they do it without authority but later they let system owners or admin know about the vulnerability to get it fixed.

US universities

In March 2018, a group of Iranian hackers targeted universities across Unites States and abroad and store 31 tera bytes of data that is worth 3 Billion in intellectual property. The technique used was spear phishing emails sent to university professors and other employees to gain network access. Out of 100,000 emails sent, around 8000 could successfully breach data. DOJ has found its links to Tehran based hacking institution called Mabna.


In November 2018, 500 million records of customer data was stolen by hackers. Data including user ID’s, passwords, travel records, credit cards details etc. This is one of the huge attacks after Yahoo hacks. Passport numbers, arrival and departure details, lodging and boarding details were stolen. This information could be used to perform online scams, credit card clones etc.


The social media giant Facebook is not an exception for hackers. Around 30 million user accounts were breached in September, 2018. Unlike other hackings, user personal data like names, status, locations, address related data was stolen by attackers from Facebook. The intent is not clear on this data can be misused though.
