The FBI and Virginia State Police are investigating the potential breach of more than 8 million patient’s medical prescription records after a hacker broke into a commonwealth Web site and posted a ransom note demanding $10 million for the data’s safe return.Officials at the Department of Health Professions, which oversees the potentially breached Prescription Monitoring Program, skirted questions about the hacker’s claims Tuesday.
When asked whether millions of Virginians should be worried whether data regarding what prescription medications they take is secure, department Director Sandra Whitley Ryals told The Examiner: “We have no confirmation that the information is anything but safe,” and declined to comment further, citing the ongoing criminal investigation.
