US Health Department Ensnared by MOVEit Hacking Campaign

“The US Department of Health and Human Services was ensnared by a sweeping hacking campaign that exploited a flaw in file-transfer software called MOVEit, according to an official with the department.“

“The attackers gained access to data by exploiting MOVEit software used by third-party vendors, the official said, adding that no HHS systems or networks were compromised. Congress was notified of a “major incident” on June 27, according to the official, indicating it may involve exposure of data from 100,000 or more people. “

“However, HHS has no evidence to suggest internal email communications have been compromised, the official said. “
