The Times of Israel is reporting Black Shadow hackers leak medical records of 290,000 Israeli patients. The Iran-linked Black Shadow ransomware group released the medical records of the entire directory from Machon Mor medical institute, including information on treatments and appointments. This occurred the same day the group released the full database the LGTBQ dating website Atraf. Excerpts:
- The directory reportedly includes information on patients’ blood tests, treatments, appointments for gynecologists, CT scans, ultrasounds, colonoscopies, vaccinations for flights abroad, and more.
- The group uploaded the file to a channel on the Telegram messaging app after a ransom demand of $1 million in digital currency to prevent the leak was apparently not paid. The group wrote, in broken English, “48 hours ended! Nobody send us money. This is not the end, we have more plan.”
- The group also posted screenshots of what it said were negotiations over the ransom. In the images of the conversations, Black Shadow supposedly refuses a ransom of $500,000. CyberServe denied negotiating with the hackers.
