City of Philadelphia discloses data breach after five months

“The City of Philadelphia is investigating a data breach after attackers "may have gained access" to City email accounts containing personal and protected health information five months ago, in May. “

“While officials discovered the incident on May 24 following suspicious activity in the City's email environment, the investigation found that the threat actors may have accessed emails in the compromised email accounts for at least two months after the City became aware of the incident. “

“"However, to date, the investigation determined that between May 26, 2023 and July 28, 2023, an unauthorized actor may have gained access to certain City email accounts and certain information contained therein," the breach notice says. “

“While the investigation and a manual review of the affected email accounts are still ongoing, the City revealed that the types of information exposed for impacted individuals include a combination of: demographic information, such as name, address, date of birth, social security number, and other contact information; medical information, such as diagnosis and other treatment-related information; and limited financial information, such as claims information“
