Hackers may have hacked The Health and Human Services Department, which found some defect back on September 20, AP said on Friday. It’s possible that private information, including social security numbers, birth dates and names belonging to doctors and nurses was compromised in the attack.

According to Surgeon General Vivek Murthy said in an email to TechnoBuffalo that, “Based on our investigation, affected individuals are those served by this website-based system: current, retired and former Commissioned Corps officers and their dependents”.

Nearly 6,700 people are affected by the possible breach. The HHS isn’t positive that someone broke in or that data was obtained, only that there was “something amiss with the system” on September 20.
