"About 13,000 patients of Baystate Health may have had some of their personal information compromised, due to a “phishing” e-mail that was received by some staff members.
According to a Baystate Health news release sent to 22News, the information may have included names and dates of birth, in addition to medical information, such as diagnoses and the type of treatment the patient received, and even perhaps health insurance identification numbers. Social Security numbers and billing information were definitely not compromised, Baystate says.
Baystate Health learned about the phishing e-mail on August 22. The e-mail, which was sent to several employees- five of whom replied to it- was designed to look like a legitimate internal memo. By responding to the e-mail, those five employees potentially had their accounts accessed by hackers."
