Singapore’s Largest Healthcare Group Hacked, 1.5 Million Patient Records Stolen

Singapore’s largest healthcare group, SingHealth, has suffered a massive data breach that allowed hackers to snatch personal information on 1.5 million patients who visited SingHealth clinics between May 2015 and July 2018.

SingHealth is the largest healthcare group in Singapore with 2 tertiary hospitals, 5 national specialty , and eight polyclinics.

According to an advisory released by Singapore’s Ministry of Health (MOH), along with the personal data, hackers also managed to stole ‘information on the outpatient dispensed medicines’ of about 160,000 patients, including Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, and few ministers.
