Jupiter, Florida-based Health Management Concepts – which also is known as HMC Healthworks – learned on July 16 that data on a server used to share files with its clients had been infected by ransomware, according to a notification letter it sent to the New Hampshire state attorney general.”When HMC learned about the incident, it took immediate steps to decrypt the files, provision a new server, begin an investigation and, through counsel, engage a leading forensic firm,” the notification letter indicates. “HMC promptly obtained decryption keys from the attackers and decrypted the data without any impact on the services HMC provides.”On July 19, however, “HMC discovered that the attackers were inadvertently provided a file that contained personal information of some members, including Social Security numbers of four New Hampshire residents.”
