28 Oct Healthy Kids Corp. Struck by Phishing Scam, Personal Data Compromised
Last Thursday, it was reported that Healthy Kids Corp., a Florida health insurance company, was struck by a phishing scam over the summer which may have compromised the private information of around 2000 people.
The company’s board of directors were told that the data was left exposed to unauthorized users for up to 24 hours, and that the scammer was able to see the Social Security numbers of members who are still enrolled.
Those who were affected had already been notified and also had their accounts flagged. The company offered a free one-year subscription to a security screening service, but only 150 people have signed up to date.
