Re: Thousands of NHS staff details nicked

Malware installed after anti-malware protection and an "unauthorised firewall change" was made. It seems the firewall change took place some time prior to the attack itself and the malware was your generic get in/copy/try to self-replicate sort so we've no idea if the data has been used or will be.

In truth NHS Wales probably got the same generic BS letter that Scotland and England got, which gave sweet FA detail and then had to chase up the company - only to find out they'd outsourced the handling of the incident to a group of lawyers (Yay america!) who were completely useless when it came to providing information. It took them nearly 2 months to reply to my 5 single questions e.g. Why has it taken you 3 months to tell us our data has been lost?

Anonymous for obvious reasons.
