Millions of healthcare records exposed in mega data breach

A non-password protected database containing millions of healthcare records and 68.53GB of medical related data has been discovered by security researcher Jeremiah Fowler and the Website Planet research team.

The medical records in the exposed database contained patient IDs, physician notes and other detailed medical data on patients in the US. While some of this data was encrypted, the notes and information on physicians were in plain text.
